Quick Overview

John Newton shares his love of food and life with the readers, taking them on a journey from the historical beginnings of food to the modern day critic's view of dining.

Some people eat to live, some live to eat, John Newton eats for a living. Food is part of every aspect of life and John's writings combine food with love, larceny and music. He shows us also how food is a very political topic. He charms us with his earliest influences, of idyllic holidays around the Mediterranean, horrifies us with stories of his worst food experiences and reminds us why food is one of the joys of life.
