The Pédant ambition is simpleHe wants to cook tasty, nutritious food; he wants not to poison his friends; and he wants to increase, slowly and with pleasure, his culinary repertoireA severe critic of himself and others, he knows he never goes to invent his own recipes (although he might, in a burst of enthusiasm, increase the amount of a favorite ingredient)Rather, it is a recipe tied to the instructions of othersIt is in his questioning of these recipes, and of those who create them, that the Pédant is true pedantry emerges.Big how, exactly, is a’bump’?Is a’slug’ bigger than a’dropWhen a’net’ becomes a showerAnd what’s the difference between slicing and cuttingThis book is witty and practical account of Julian Barnes’ search for precision gastronomyIt is a quest that does not let him seduce by Jane Grigson, upset by Nigel Slater, and reassured by Mrs. Victorian Beeton of virtuesThe Pédant in the Kitchen is a perfect comfort for anyone who has ever been defeated by a cookbook and it’s something none of Julian Barnes’ legion of admirers miss.
