Driving across Europe in a 1965 Ford Mustang ordered sight unseen especially for their excursion, Stuart and Rat--accompanied by an adopted golden retriever named Henry and Rat's boyfriend, Carl--masticate their way from England to Italy via three-star restaurants in France, Germany, Belgium, and Monaco. By the end of Feeding Frenzy you won't know whether to order coq au vin or pop an Alka-Seltzer; have both, just to be on the safe side. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

While the author offers a few witty comments his prejudices are many and he loves to spew them at the reader: dislikes Belgium, hates Germans, hates dogs and resents that the ex-model has impulsively adopted the brute for their journey, dislikes a BBC reporter yet calls him and invites the fellow to join them for dinner because "he is only one of two people he knows in Brussels." It just goes on and on. He name drops Elizabeth David, Edith Wharton, Laurie Colwin and others as a way of telling us that he is such an erudite foodie, yet he does practically nothing with these references.
Having eaten in many Michelin 3-star restaurants myself, I can attest that few were worth the effort or the price--Tante Claire (London), Taillevent (Paris), L'Esperance (Vezelay), and George Blanc (Vonnas) being exceptions and well worth it given my experience. But Stevens tells us very little of his actual eating experiences.Read more ›

Laugh out loud funny! You don't have to be a gourmet to enjoy reading about this parade through so-called "fancy restaurants"!Published on May 30, 2003
Instead of "Feeding Frenzy," I think "Reading Frenzy" would be a more appropriate title. Read morePublished on November 13, 2000
Unlike many other reviewers I liked this book immensely. I doubt that many of us have eaten at many (or any) of these gourmet palaces described in the book, but we can still... Read morePublished on June 18, 2000 by Avid Reader
