The Cranky Connoisseur

The Cranky Connoisseur book cover
Everyone is a foodie now. But in a world of foodies, refinement and rarified good taste seem increasingly to come at the cost of actually being satisfied with anything. How do we crack the dilemma of contentment when we're constantly accumulating expertise about how things can be improved? The Cranky Connoisseur takes us on a tasty and entertaining tour through London, Las Vegas, and the remote British Columbian bush, en route to its surprising answer.
