It Must've Been Something I Ate

The Return of the Man Who Ate Everything

Book - 2002

Rate this:
In this outrageous and delectable new volume, the Man Who Ate Everything proves that he will do anything to eat everything. That includes going fishing for his own supply of bluefin tuna belly; nearly incinerating his oven in pursuit of the perfect pizza crust, and spending four days boning and stuffing three different fowl--into each other-- to produce the Cajun specialty called "turducken."

It Must've Been Something I Ate finds Steingarten testing the virtues of chocolate and gourmet salts; debunking the mythology of lactose intolerance and Chinese Food Syndrome; roasting marrow bones for his dog , and offering recipes for everything from lobster rolls to gratin dauphinois. The result is one of those rare books that are simultaneously mouth-watering and side-splitting.

This lawyer turned food writer presents short items from his culinary columns for Vogue magazine. He describes forays into the world of gastronomic delight with wit and humour, but he is dead serious about food, his passion. As he searches for the best of everything—chefs, products, recipes—he can find himself in some very interesting situations. Each piece presents a new revelation. Some recipes included but a few too complicated to contemplate.

Jeffrey Steingarten (most will know him as the sour faced judge on Iron Chef America) might surprise some with the things he'll try (and the things he won't) in his quest to eat everything. Despite his grumbly TV persona, Steingarten is witty and light hearted in this book, which is a sort of sequel to his "The Man Who Ate Everything". Follow Steingarten through his maze of epicurious delights and mishaps and you'll find yourself vowing to try a few of his experiments for yourself.
