What a great companion to those who enjoy eating out. My friend and fellow blogger Neil Davey has written this humourous pocket size book, The Bluffer’s Guide to Food. (Available at Amazon UK at a discounted price of £3.99)
Included in the book is a list of 5 places do dine before you die, each includes a paragraph of “Maximum Bluffing Value”. These include the temples of gastronomy that every foodie should have in their bucket list and the list includes Noma in Copenhagen, the Tsukiji Fish Market Tokyo, Central in Peru, El Celler De Can Roca Spain and The Old Biscuit Mill in South Africa.
Here is a snippet on El Celler De Can Roca in Spain:
Maximum Bluffing Value: Since winning the Best Restaurant award, the waiting list for a table is currently a year and there is a backlog of 3,000 requests. The best bet is to go to Rocambolesc, the restaurant’s ice cream shop, so at least you can say you’ve ‘eaten’ there.
The book is about 116 pages and has a lot of useful chapters like names to drop, food trends, discussions about gourmet burgers, food shopping and posh nosh. It’s small but mighty and highly recommended for would be gastronauts and would make a good primer for food bloggers who are looking to expand their horizons.
It’s a good fun read and it is handy to keep in your pocket when you travel.
