  • Witty and weird...this extraordinary "cookbook", stuffed with esoteric foodie facts, contains a surprising quantity of workable recipes, but the principal pleasure is to be derived from Gates's witty writing, which had me laughing out loud.

    Sunday Times
  • Huge fun, extremely informative and featuring the oddest selection of recipes you are ever likely to see (I never knew, incidentally, that woodlice tasted like shrimps), Stefan Gates' new book is in the best tradition of British experimental gastronomy.

    Daily Express
  • A brilliant, brilliant book

    Pete and Geoff, Virgin Radio
  • Brilliant. Deranged, but Brilliant.

    Heston Blumenthal
  • With the avalanche of chef books launching this autumn, Gates and his irreverent look at culinary matters presents welcome relief from all that serious cooking, It's a splendid read.
