When a group of food-obsessed academics at Oxford University form a dining society to promote the cause of gastronomy, what could possibly go wrong? More than they ever imagined. Their well-intentioned culinary explorations lead them into murky waters with a dead Japanese diplomat, charges of grave robbing and a bizarre cannibalistic experiment.
A truly compelling read with a shocking climax. Well written and incredibly descriptive, the author of this particular work has clearly done homework about the field of gastronomy to produce a wonderful and memorable read.
Amazon breakthrough novel award 2013 expert reviewer:
I am enthralled with the voice with which you have chosen to write. The tone is amusing, arch and
very fitting for the characters you have created. The descriptions are exquisite.
