Synopsis:
Winner of the Julia Child Book Award A James Beard Book Award FinalistWhen Jeffrey Steingarten was appointed food critic for Vogue, he systematically set out to overcome his distaste for such things as kimchi, lard, Greek cuisine, and blue food. He succeeded at all but the last: Steingarten is "fairly sure that God meant the color blue mainly for food that has gone bad." In this impassioned, mouth-watering, and outrageously funny book, Steingarten devotes the same Zen-like discipline and gluttonous curiosity to practically everything that anyone anywhere has ever called "dinner." Follow Steingarten as he jets off to sample choucroute in Alsace, hand-massaged beef in Japan, and the mother of all ice creams in Sicily. Sweat with him as he tries to re-create the perfect sourdough, bottle his own mineral water, and drop excess poundage at a luxury spa. Join him as he mounts a heroic--and hilarious--defense of salt, sugar, and fat (though he has some nice things to say about Olestra). Stuffed with offbeat erudition and recipes so good they ought to be illegal, The Man Who Ate Everything is a gift for anyone who loves food.

Review:
"[S]erves up 40 obsessional, witty and authoritative essays....His brisk and self-mockingly pedantic disquisitions on the edible are unrivaled in the completeness of their basic research."

Raymond Sokolov, Wall Street Journal, 11/12/1997

Review:
"[A] wonderful book, comprising a selection of his brilliant essays....[A]n improbable mayonnaise that in less expert hands would have curdled immediately but in Steingarten's has turned out a triumph. it is part cookbook, part travelogue, part medical and scientific treatise, part propaganda pamphlet and part self-deprecating self-portrait. Steingarten writes with marvelous ease and clarity and humor. His facts are fascinating and so are his recipes.."

Alexander Chancellor, New York Times Book Review, 12/07/1997
