I’d Sooner Starve! (The story of a hapless restaurant owner)
Have you ever eaten in a restaurant? Have you ever wondered why the waiter was surly? Why the salad was limp? The Soup cold? Ever thought the owners looked like they didn’t know what they were doing? Ever thought you could do better … ever wanted to quit your job…?
‘I’d Sooner Starve’ is the amazing true story of one man’s quest to escape his monotonous nine-to-five existence and open a charming delicatessen and restaurant in a delightful market town.
With honesty, humour and breathtaking naïveté, it records his steep learning curve, radical lifestyle change and the immediate revelation that the customer is not always right!
Amidst tales of bulimia, public menstruation, endless abuse and hilarious customer encounters, this eye-opening story unveils what happens after you walk into the boss and say: “I quit!”
‘I’d Sooner Starve’ is a shockingly comical tale of culinary highs, customer lows and one woman’s unhealthy fixation with thigh-warmed Stilton…
