    Since I m into cooking and, to a lesser extent, food writing, this book had been recommended to me several times over the last few years I finally borrowed it from a friend at work and must say that it didn t really live up to my expectations It s an interesting, engaging, often funny book, probably essential for the gourmand, but if you have a mere passing interest in gourmet and exotic food, you d probably do well to skip it and read something by Mark Kurlansky instead.I suppose my biggest c Since I m into cooking and, to a lesser extent, food writing, this book had been recommended to me several times over the last few years I finally borrowed it from a friend at work and must say that it didn t really live up to my expectations It s an interesting, engaging, often funny book, probably essential for the gourmand, but if you have a mere passing interest in gourmet and exotic food, you d probably do well to skip it and read something by Mark Kurlansky instead.I suppose my biggest complaint about the book is that Steingarten often takes the most impossible or impractical route to cooking something For instance, in search of the perfect water, he has Vogue pick up the check for his water tab and orders hundreds of varieties of bottled water before finally visiting the store where they are sold Or when he bakes bread, he flies off to Paris to visit his friend for some pointers...

    The entire time I was growing up, my feminist lawyer mother had a subscription to Vogue I can t completely explain it myself, but woman does love her shoes Anyway, I spent elementary school reading Steingarten articles for the mag, where he is still the food columnist My conclusion for this book is that he is probably best in small doses Like, monthly doses But, if you ve never read any of his stuff before, I d check this out in one essay at a time stints Steingarten is obviously brilliant The entire time I was growing up, my feminist lawyer mother had a subscription to Vogue I can t completely explain it myself, but woman does love her shoes Anyway, I spent elementary school reading Steingarten articles for the mag, where he is still the food columnist My conclusion for this book is that he is probably best in small doses Like, monthly doses But, if you ve never read any of his stuff before, I d check...

    Probably not going to finish this one I am not going to make it to book club, and, frankly, I don t like the book, or the author He can be witty and smart enough at times, and I liked it for a while, and maybe it s just the bar study grumpiness talking, but I really resent that large chunks of this read like a dieting memoir, and that if it were written by a woman it would not be considered some kind of clever high mindedness, but rather just some woman ranting about weighing herself four ti Probably not going to finish this one I am not going to make it to book club, and, frankly, I don t like the book, or the author He can be witty and smart enough at times, and I liked it for a while, and maybe it s just the bar study grumpiness talking, but I really resent that large chunks of this read like a dieting memoir, and that if it were written by a woman it would not be considered some kind of clever high mindedness, but rather just some woman ranting about weighing herself four times a day Why do I want to read about him weighing himself four times a day and buying multiple scales and whether the crazy diets work I do not Incidentally, it all feels incredibly dated, as conventional wisdom about nutriti...

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here He is an excellent writer with a sharp sense of humor and a great palette My favorite part is when he forces himself to eat all the foods that he grew up hating to get over his aversions He comes across as muchlike able on paper than during his live appearances on Iron Chef Steingarten married a ...

    Steingarten s compilation of essays on a wide variety of food related subjects written in the late 80s and 90s seems like it might be an interesting read for someone who likes food and cooking HOWEVER, the man s ego astronomical, of untold proportions, seriously it can be seen from three planets over is a bit of a turn off Its fun to read about someone experimenting with the many ways you can use a particular kitchen appliance or how best to prepare a particular cut of meat, but in all the b Steingarten s compilation of essays on a wide variety of food related subjects written in the late 80s and 90s seems like it might be an interesting read for someone who likes food and cooking HOWEVER, the man s ego astronomical, of untold proportions, seriously it can be seen from three planets over is a bit of a turn off Its fun to read about someone experimenting ...

    Or nearly everything, since it seems unlikely that anybody who had ever had a good nolen gurer shondesh would so summarily dismiss all Indian desserts as being reminiscent of highly perfumed creams fit only for the boudoir But yes, Jeffrey Steingarten, once the monthly food correspondent for Vogue, does seem to have pretty much eaten the best and the worst of most of the highly acclaimed cuisines, at least as far as the Western world is concerned In this interesting and very eclectic collect Or nearly everything, since it seems unlikely that anybody who had ever had a good nolen gurer shondesh would so summarily dismiss all Indian desserts as being reminiscent of highly perfumed creams fit only for the boudoir But yes, Jeffrey Steingarten, once the monthly food correspondent for Vogue,...

    This book represents to me a lost way of life It s a life in which I would read books like this, slowly, with particular pleasure, laughing out loud at regular intervals Afterwards, I would have time to write about them all, and share some of my pleasure I almost did this today but that s because I am on holiday The Man Who Ate Everything is a book of essays, and really each one should be savoured at length No rushing Gentle but steady progress is the thing I am at an age where I no longer This book represents to me a lost way of life It s a life in which I would read books like this, slowly, with particular pleasure, laughing out loud at regular intervals Afterwards, I would have time to write about them all, and share some of my pleasure I almost did this today but that s because I am on holiday The Man Who Ate Everything is a book of essays, and really each one should be savoured at length No rushing Gentle but steady progress is the thing I am at an age where I no longer need to read the recipes which shortens the book by about ten per cent because I have no intention of attempting to make them It s enough to read about Jeffrey Steingarten s noble culinary inventiveness, the people he meets, the morsels he tastes, the trips in taxis to find ingredients, the joyous errors, the fabulous achievements, the wonderful life...
