More About This Title The Foodies' & Scoffers' Bible


Stimulate the taste buds with this hilarious collection, stuffed full of foodie facts, figures, jokes, and true stories. Cook up an interesting selection of strange recipes and rude foods, quiver at the best chef putdowns in kitchen history, learn how many tons of food a cruise liner consumes on a one week trip around the Mediterranean, and tremble at the real-life admissions of catering staff from all branches of the industry, then stock up on a whole host of hilarious menu translations and plenty more. It's the light-hearted way to satisfy your appetite for all things culinary. Anyone who loves food, or loves having a laugh will emerge licking their lips from this book. Unlike many food books that take themselves terribly seriously, The Foodies and Scoffers Bible is unpretentious and does exactly what it says on the tin. It will make readers laugh out loud, and occasionally wince at what goes on behind the scenes, but it's never less than entertaining.
