Description
Even before Goldilocks made saucy remarks about her purloined porridge, people have been offering unflattering commentary on the victuals proffered, from Mark Twain ("The food would create an insurrection in a poorhouse") to Fred Allen ("The coffee tastes like water that has been squeezed out of a wet sleeve") and Ruth Reichl ("Is there anyone on earth who really wants to eat grapefruit-mustard sorbet?"). This delightfully rude little compendium gathers 600 such unsavory assessments, describing pretentious cuisine, lousy waiters, awkward dinner parties, bizarre foreign food, unloved vegetables, less-than-fresh fish, and failed desserts.
