The Supper Book
An Invitation To Eat And Drink
by Peter Burnett
The Supper Book is a once in a lifetime experience: a list of every single thing one man ate and drank over the course of one calendar year.
A glorious and crazy read, the food and drink in The Supper Book is glossed, especially when the author realised the incredible natures of the many concoctions he had purchased or been served.
In The Supper Book Peter Burnett demonstrates the character and virtues of his foods and collects notices on the history and culture of many of the meals that he found it worthwhile to comment upon.
The Supper Book also details manners of eating and drinking, and a list of the cafes, restaurants, bars and private homes visited.
