AA Gill: Table Talk

AA Gill Table TalkAA Gill was both TV and food critic for the Times. In both roles, he brought a deep understanding of his chosen subjects which he served up with a side-dish of acerbic wit. In these days of endless and mind-numbing cookery programs, to read Table Talk is to understand what food means in a nation’s heritage and culture. David Watson reads two chapters from Table Talk, one on Pizza Express and the second on the revered Elizabeth David, a reverence not shared by Gill himself.
