Turning the Tables: The Insider's Guide to Eating Out
Steven A. Shaw
Publisher: HarperCollins PublishersFormat: Paperback
Award-winning food critic Steven A. Shaw (a.k.a. “The Fat Guy”) can get a last-minute dinner reservation at the most popular hot spot in town. He knows how that flawless piece of fish reached your plate. He can read between the lines of a restaurant review, and he knows the secrets of why some restaurants succeed and others fail. Now he shares his insider's expertise with food lovers everywhere.But “Turning the Tables” is much more than an invaluable how-to guide to eating out. Written with style and humor, it's an in-depth exploration of the restaurant world — a celebration of the incredibly intricate workings of professional kitchens and dining rooms. It is a delectable feast from a uniquely down-to-earth gourmet who has crisscrossed North America in search of culinary knowledge at every level of the food chain — from five-star temples of haute cuisine to barbecue joints and hot dog stands — and who has never been afraid to get his hands greasy on the other side of the swinging kitchen door.
