Hugh Fearlessly Eats It All
'It has been said that I will eat anything. This is, of course, nonsense. A fried egg that still has a pool of runny egg white clinging to the yolk is a definite no-no. Still, I must admit that it was with some pride that I read, in one review of mu series A Cook on the Wild Side, that I had been given the sobriquet 'Hugh Fearlessly Eatsitall'. I was less pleased with another critic who previewed the show by saying, 'Hairy Hugh dredges up more muck from the canal for his grubby cooking pot'...'
In this hugely enjoyable collection, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall chomps his way through the edible, the delectable, and the plain indigestible.
'Hugh Fearlessly Eatsitall' has been writing about food in all its guises for twenty years. To some, his concept of 'good eating might seem a bit skewed -- he'd always bypass a McBurger in favour of a squirrel sandwich make a detour for fresh roadkill -- but to others he is a shining and shaggy beacon of hood sense in a food world gone mad, the scourge of all those who would feed us less well than we deserve.
Armed with a broad mind, a quick wit and a ready appetite, Hugh covers almost every area of global food culture. Whether singing the praises of offal; debunking Colonel Sanders and Dr Atkins; playing 'poisson roulette' with the deadly fugu fish in Tokyo; pondering the moral inconsistency of those who condemn fox hunting for its cruelty while happily tucking into factory-farmed chicken; fishing for marlin in Kenya, and barracuda in the Bahamas; analysing the dunking qualities of classic British biscuits; contemplating why, if piglets are destined for the pot, puppies aren't; or reminding us that reindeer isn't just for Christmas, but tasty all year round, Hugh has an unerring ability to entertain and provoke.
