  • About the Author

    Terry Durack is the most read, respected and occasionally reviled food writer in Australia, where he is the restaurant reviewer for the Sydney Morning Herald.  He holds a similarly powerful position in the UK where, as a regular columnist for Independent on Sunday, he heaps praise and scorn on various British restuarants and food purveyors.

    With his profound knowledge of food, and wit as sharp as a mandoline, his writing is always delivious.

    Terry Durrack's previous books include: Hot Food, Cool Jazz, Yum: A Voyage Around My Stomach, Noodle and Hunger.
