A positive review is always welcome, particularly one in such a well-respected guidebook as the recently published The Good Food Guide 2011. Now in its 60th year, the guide remains the UK’s bestselling foodie review tome, and because it’s compiled in part from reader feedback, it uniquely also provides a barometer for true customer opinion.

Yes, it’s quite a mouthful, but that’s somewhat appropriate for a 264-page hardback, especially one that not only explains why the 60 selected chefs have been deemed worthy of inclusion, but also gives the reader the opportunity to taste why, too.
