This book is the next best thing to traveling with Nan Lyons. With a novelist's eye for delicious details, she takes us on a most memorable tour from her favorite London tea parlor to a Parisian sidewalk caf� to a New Delhi kebob factory and a parking lot that's home to Singapore's best chili crab. --(Alex von Bidder & Julian Niccolini, The Four Seasons Restaurants)
