From Pim Techamuanvivit knowledgeable foodie and ueen of the food bloggers comes this engaging guidebookto all things food related Pim has toured the globe to bring hungry people up to date with what's happening in thef I enjoyed this well enough Pim's writing is entertaining and casual perfect blog fodder but I was hoping for a bit from the book The recipes are a nice touch definitely some gems but I wasnt looking fir a cookbook Pim clearly has a wealth of experience in eating as well as the connections to continue having amazing foodie moments and she does know her stuff However I don't think the book is uite extensive or in depth enough to be called even an almost definitive guide to gastronomy She drops brief tips that are meant to show off her insider knowledge but doesn't provide any real in depth evidence or info beyond her own opinions I'd be likely to recommend this to new foodies not a lot here for anyone who has already made a decent effort in cultivating their inner foodie or even just watched a lot of Anthony Bourdain Overall entertaining enough and def a uick read The recipes seem very solid as well though you can likely get all of that from the author's blog I am glad I took the time to read this will certainly check in at Chez Pim that's the blog but I think I would have been disappointed if I'd purchased this at its list price

Pim Techamuanvivit ¹ Foodie Handbook eBook

Foodie HandbookOod world through Chez Pim a Web site that attracts hits a week In The Foodie Handbook she collects tips secrets anecdotes and recipes from the world's top chefs including Anthony Bourdain and Fergus Henderson Food love It really boggles the mind that so many people despise the term foodie Well what in the Sam Hill term should you use instead Foodist Foodver Foodabinga Foodemic Foodmando FoodanistaIt troubles me that there is such disdain for a word and that it is immediately mocked by those who will set themselves apart by declaring that they are not in any way foodies because they are better than all foodies or fatties as some things I read liked to call people with an over interest in food and eating by refusing to take part in the flim flam that being a foodie is despite the fact that the mere declaration that you are NOT a foodie while actually being a foodie means that you are even pretentious and snobbish than just saying yeah whatever I'm a big fat foodie Wait I just came up with another term we can call those anti foodies snoodies snobfoodiePim Techedintheheadabit that is her name right has written a book called The Foodie Handbook that is based on her supremely popular blog called Chez Pim that I never heard of before and it's supposedly been online like ten freaking years which means it was a blog before there were even blogs snoodie anyoneWell the truth is Pim's Cup is the girly behind or in front of however they manage it the 2 star Michelin'ed David Kinch making her Kinch's Kitchen Wench or Kwinch from the well reviewed CA restaurant Manresa as well as G's cheffie of the year in 2011 They have been together for seven years and there is a large age difference between them as well as height and weight David being portly and taller and Pim being tiny and smallerDoes having this critically acclaimed Chef boyfriend of advancing years have anything to do with Pim's sudden book deal cooking classes held at the farm where he is involved in biodynamic farming for his restaurant and coverage from media like The New York Times and every food magazine and blog on Earth Ya thinkPim's pedigree seems to be that she was from a wealthy Thai family in Bangkok who sent her to the US for school and she messed around with some internet stuff until she worked out that having a chef boyfriend might be the boost she needed to make this writingmacaron makingjam and marmalade production thingee take offPim's a big ol' name dropper she is calling Anthony Bourdain Tony for instance since they are the best of friends obviously and world traveler with unlimited funds to dine in the best restaurants in the world and rent homes in Provence and Tuscany and enjoy cooking locally all over the world All while making marmalade that Nigella Lawson loves while keeping her older fatter boyfriend enthralled with her jam as wellHer writing is not especially creative or interesting and although she is opinionated she seems to often be talking out of her ass such as the mini chapter in the book about sushi where she contradicts herself by saying that sushi chefs only care about taking your money except for a few places on earth that are so exclusive that you will never get in there but she has and it was so worth it and then although she tells you to not pay attention to any sushi etiuette if you dine at these exclusive two or three locations where you will not ever get in but she has because she is far better connected than you you should pay close attention to a friend who will take you there like if she was your friend but she is not because why would Pim be friends with the likes of you and take you to the best sushi place in the world I mean come on and hope they know the particular etiuette for this rarefied sushi place so you can follow exactly what they do provided they are not a complete idiot and you will be shamed possibly banned and inevitably looked down upon by Pim herself Oh and don't eat sushi with avocado you knavePim is thoroughly unlikeable and I haven't even gotten to the part in the book where there are about fifty photos and than half are black white photos of Pim Another reviewer called the book Pim's Pin ups which would be accurate except that Pim is not the most comely of kitchen wench's and having page after page of Pim really detracted from the foodGauging when next there would be a photo of Pim became like a drinking game in the middle of reading the book I ignored entire top ten lists and other blather simply to see the next artsy photo of Pim reading some word art on a wall at elBulli the supposed best or top or greatest whatever the hell it is pretentious restaurant in the world Pim taking a sip of wine Pim stirring something Pim walking Pim smiling Pim shopping Pim with a camera Pim with an ice cream Pim laughing Pim shaving her legs that must have been in there I know there was a Pim flossing her teeth photo and now it's time to take a drink Am I smashed yet If I'm three sheets to the wind do I need to finish this ridiculous bookTurns out no I do not have to No one does The bottom line is Pim likes to talk about Pim than food being a foodie or snoodie and frankly she just comes off as rudie She really has nothing to say except that she is better than you and I suppose she could do that just as well on her blog while selling out her little marmalade making classes at the Lovesick Farm or whatever venture her boyfriend David Knitwit hooked her up with Yes for 115 you too can learn to make jam from Pim and be a better person for it Sorry better Like PimI give it two stars and not one star for the following reasons1 The cover is a joke on whoever purchases it as it will surely give you a paper cut before you tear it off with impunity2 Most of the people who have reviewed the book here on did not actually purchase it like I did so I have to save face somehow3 I feel bad for the word foodie like I feel bad for ugly dogs and Anne Hathaway4 I only paid 99 cents for it
