Jay Rayner

Award-winning journalist, writer and broadcaster, Jay Rayner has been a restaurant critic for over a decade, written reviews of well over 700 establishments, and if there's one thing he's learnt, it's that people like reviews of bad restaurants. No, scratch that. They adore them, feast upon them like starving vultures who have spotted fly-blown carrion out in the bush.

In My Dining Hell, Jay examines our love affair with lousy reviews, reads from accounts of some of the most excruciating nights out he's ever had and looks at the worst reviews his own work has ever received.

A hugely entertaining show in the company of the man recently voted the best food and drink journalist in Britain.
