  • ÒWaiter and customer have a lot in common. Each lingers under the delusion that lunch is on the way, neither has more than a passing interest in the other, and both are at the mercy of an ill-tempered thug with a white toque,Ó writes restaurant critic Trevor White in his uproarious account and passionate and unbiased exposZ of the restaurant business. With style and wit, White lifts the lid off the culinary cartelÑowners, chefs, and criticsÑthat cons diners around the globe. A scathing attack on gourmet dogma, his defiantly populist critique of restaurant culture redefines the dining room as a place in which people should be satisfied rather than awe-struck by egomaniacal chefs, pretentious waiters, and arrogant critics. In this riveting account of life at the heart of the restaurant racket, no one is safe.
