Review: Bought this to replace a very dog eared version and thoroughly enjoyed rereading it. Gill has such a way with words, creating elegant phrases, word portraits and descriptions that make you laugh out loud. One of my go to authors when I am looking for wines to brighten up a journey of a dull day. This has been particularly true in the current pandemic and lockdown at home.

Review: Save your money. The editors have stripped out the context and we are left with...what? Nothing: nothing to identify the restaurant or even the year of the review. Most of the references to food have been redacted, which leaves us with Gill and his mankini ego; nothing else. Nothing. This is the most pointless book that I own. I feel the need to burn it and donate a month's wages to charity to put things right. Do not buy this book. Just don't.

    Description: 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. Orion Publishing Co Table Talk - shop the best deal online on thebookbug.co.uk

  • Notting Hill Editions Table Talk & Recollections

    Price: £14.99

    Description: A poet and banker who knew everybody, Samuel Rogers (1763-1855) was a brilliant recorder of things said by his famous and powerful contemporaries, from Edmund Burke to Talleyrand, from Charles James Fox to the Duke of Wellington. He was all ears, very good at hearing what was said, and assiduous about recording it in a kind of laconic shorthand. Originally published in the 1830s, but not edited since then, his energetic, entertaining, and occasionally eye-popping table-talk gives phenomenal texture to our understanding of Regency high life. Reading it is like eavesdropping on the past. Introduced by the distinguished literary critic Professor Christopher Ricks.
