The Man Who Ate Everything by Jeffrey Steingarten
The Man Who Ate Everything

Peter T Luce, January 7, 2010

Long before he became the overly smug judge you love to hate on Iron Chef America and The Next Iron Chef, Jeffrey Steingarten was (and still is) Vogue magazine’s food critic (which I imagine must be like writing a sex column for the Wall Street Journal, but I digress). And even longer before that, he was a lawyer (double-Harvard, no less). Somewhere along the way he wrote what I believe to be the funniest, wittiest, and most engrossing collection of food-related essays in existence. Buy it, you won't be disappointed - even if you don't cook, his commentary is sublime, and often hilarious.
