A quicky with Jay Rayner

Jay Rayner is a journalist, writer, broadcaster and musician. Most of you will know him as a food critic on Masterchef; of course he has written food reviews for many years to achieve such fear and admiration from both the amateur and professional contestants.
He has his own sense of humour, and honestly describes when a meal or flavour combination has had an epic fail, and yet with very few words, you know he has tasted something great.
He has published some books, his latest one is The 10 (Food) Commandments, and he is currently eating and talking his way around the country with his live one man show.
If you are not into his thoughts on food, he is also a musician with his own jazz quartet.
After seeing his tweets regarding his upcoming shows being in Devon, I asked him 5 questions, which he has kindly answered for me below...enjoy.
1. What food establishment made you say wow (perhaps you walked in with a plan on hating it).
The future, like the past, is another country, one I have not visited. In short every time I've tried to make a prediction I've been wrong. I have no idea.
3. Why should people buy your book...what's in it for them?
I love his honesty and sense of humour, delivering the final verdict on a plate of food in only a way Jay Rayner can. I'm looking forward to attending one of his upcoming shows to see him in action and in the flesh.
