We’re fans of Top Chef and midway through the current season, regular judge Gail Simmons got married and went on her honeymoon, so there’s a new regular judge taking her place – an ascerbic Brit named Toby Young. It turns out I’ve read a book of his that had nothing to do with food criticism:

This season introduces new judge Toby Young, food critic and best-selling author of the book “How to Lose Friends and Alienate People,” which was the basis for an upcoming film.

Well son of a gun. I’m gonna pull that book off my shelf next time I think of it and give it a leaf-through. I recall it being pretty funny.
