Overview

It has been said that I will eat anything. That 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 my series A Cook on the Wild Side, that I had been given the sobriquet "Hugh Fearlessly Eatsitall"...

For almost two decades Hugh has been writing about food in all its guises. To some, his concept of good eating might seem a bit skewed - hed always bypass a McBurger in favour of a squirrel sandwich, and make a detour for fresh road kill - but to others he is a shining and shaggy beacon of good sense in a food world gone mad. 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; playing poisson roulette with the deadly fugu fish in Tokyo; analysing the tea-dunking qualities of some classic British biscuits; or reminding us that a reindeer isnt just for Christmas, but tasty all year round.
