From newbie foodies to experienced eaters, there's something in Try This for everyone to discover. In the Restaurant Girl's own words, "I'm writing this book for anyone who's ever looked at a menu and had a question. Anyone who's had a plate put in front of him and wondered what the hell was in it?" Convivial and encouraging, Try This reminds us that eating out is a delicious adventure: 'Life is one long feast. Devour it.'"--Publisher's description.
