Content descriptions

Summary: In 1968, Gael Greene became restaurant critic of the fledgling New York magazine. She'd never written a restaurant review in her life, but she was a passionate foodie, and dining in great restaurants on someone else's dime was too enticing to resist. Thus began a remarkable career charting the restaurants that changed the way Americans ate, the chefs who turned cooking into an art form, and the food and wines that launched a culinary revolution. Gael is convinced that food and sex are inextricably linked, and in this exuberant account of her adventures in sensuous excess, she takes readers on a joyride from the world's best tables, to naughty dinners with Craig Claiborne and then to bed with the men she couldn't resist. The recipes she includes reflect the decades. Greene's tale of pleasure and heartbreak will make you laugh. It may make you cry. It will certainly make you hungry.--From publisher description.
