Reviews

Julian Barnes's musings on cookery form the perfect bite-size anthology for literary/foodie folk... with an introduction from The Independent's Mark Hix, The Pedant in the Kitchen is as crisp and tart (yes, yes, puns intended) a piece of writing about food as one will find anywhere... it makes for compelling reading... Did I mention that it's funny? Barnes hams up his own cack-handedness in the kitchen delightfully... a sequel would be most delicious. -- Lisa Markwell * Independent on Sunday *
a brilliant and self-mocking modern classic * Daily Mail *
