Summary

Includes Le Cinq, Beast and Farm Girl Café, and a new introduction by the author.

Jay Rayner isn’t just a trifle irritated. He is eye-gougingly, bone-crunchingly, teeth-grindingly angry. And admit it, that’s why you picked up this book, isn’t it?

Because you aren’t really interested in glorious prose poems celebrating the finest dining experiences known to humanity, are you? You want him to suffer abysmal cooking, preferably at eye-watering prices, so you can gorge on the details and luxuriate in vicarious displeasure.

You’re in luck. Revel in Jay’s misfortune as he is subjected to dreadful meat cookery with animals that died in vain, gravies full of casual violence and service that redefines the word ‘incompetent’. He hopes you enjoy reading his reviews of these twenty miserable meals a damn sight more than he didn’t enjoy experiencing them.
