Table Talk

Author: A.A. Gill
Publisher: Hachette UK
ISBN: 9780297864691
Release Date: 2010-11-25
Genre: Cooking

The first collection of food writing by Britain's funniest and most feared critic A.A. Gill knows food, and loves food. A meal is never just a meal. It has a past, a history, connotations. It is a metaphor for life. A.A. Gill delights in decoding what lies behind the food on our plates: famously, his reviews are as much ruminations on society at large as they are about the restaurants themselves. So alongside the concepts, customers and cuisines, ten years of writing about restaurants has yielded insights on everything from yaks to cowboys, picnics to politics. TABLE TALK is an idiosyncratic selection of A.A. Gill's writing about food, taken from his Sunday Times and Tatler columns. Sometimes inspired by the traditions of a whole country, sometimes by a single ingredient, it is a celebration of what great eating can be, an excoriation of those who get it wrong, and an education about our own appetites. Because it spans a decade, the book focuses on A.A. Gill's general dining experiences rather than individual restaurants - food fads, tipping, chefs, ingredients, eating in town and country and abroad, and the best and worst dining experiences. Fizzing with wit, it is a treat for gourmands, gourmets and anyone who relishes good writing.

Release Date: 2011-05-01
Genre: Travel

From acclaimed writer AA Gill comes this collection of travel pieces selected from his monthly column in Australian Gourmet Traveller – ‘AA Gill is away’. Witty, acerbic and often moving, these pieces are far from standard travel writing fare. Touching on tourism, airports, world cuisine and countries including Madagascar, Iceland and Albania, Gill’s perspective is often controversial and always unique. He ponders Italy’s ability to turn organised crime into a tourist attraction, stumbles upon lobster-shaped coffins in Ghana, contemplates the Darwinian drive of bastardised dishes around the globe, explains why Johannesburg is the luckiest place in the unluckiest continent and considers the great black lake of tears that immigration leaves behind. With an introduction and extra piece written exclusively for this collection, Here and There showcases the very best of Gill’s hilarious and insightful travel writing, and is a must read for anyone who is curious about the world we live in.

„Eine rohe, schnörkellose, beißende, wilde Liebesgeschichte.“ Marie Claire. Eigentlich wollte Tess nicht Kellnerin werden, sondern ihrer provinziellen Heimat entkommen, in die Großstadt eintauchen und endlich herausfinden, was sie will vom Leben. Durch Zufall landet sie in einem edlen New Yorker Restaurant mit seinen ganz eigenen Regeln, Allianzen, Intrigen, Affären und Freundschaften. Um nicht unterzugehen, muss sie hart arbeiten und vor allem schnell lernen, was in der Gourmet-Welt wichtig ist. Und dann verliebt sie sich in den unnahbaren Barmann Jake. Sweetbitter ist ein großer Roman über den Genuss und die Obsession – darüber, dass man manchmal besessen sein muss, um wirklich genießen zu können. „Ein Roman als Sinnesrausch.“ Brigitte Woman.
