It was an experience of exquisite narcissism to be able to take myself out to lunch the other day with a book. Written by me.
Yes, so it finally arrived, which means that it will be coming to a bookshop near you very soon (it is, ahem, of course available through the usual online channels. You know where to look).
Funny, I was once “ridiculed” in an online spat by someone I have never met who claimed that my PhD on “food media” must be bogus because there is no such thing (because, like, it doesn’t exist on Wikipedia). Well, to borrow a line from Courtney Cox in ScreamÂ (I forget which one): “uhm, you know the saying, ‘I wrote the book on that?'”
I will add no spoilers. But just for the record, it was not me who called Jamie Oliver ‘aÂ self-righteous, elitist git.‘
