Jay Rayner has been a restaurant critic for nearly two decades, written reviews of well over 700 establishments, and if there is one thing he's learnt it is that people like reviews of bad restaurants. No, scratch that. They adore them, feast upon them like starving vultures who have spotted fly-blown carrion out in the bush.
In My Dining Hell, Rayner examines our love affair with lousy reviews, describes a few of the most excruciating nights out he's ever had and reads from some of the worst reviews his own work has received. A hugely entertaining show in the company of the man recently voted the best food and drink journalist in Britain.
Rayner is an award winning journalist, writer and broadcaster. He has been the Observer newspaper's restaurant critic for over 18 years, is the resident food expert on The One Show, a regular judge on Masterchef and chair of BBC Radio 4's Kitchen Cabinet. He has a lot of hair and a fine collection of flowery shirts.
Includes a book signing after the show!
