“if you love food then Ruby’s incisive manifesto is for you” – Thomasina Miers

“terrific piece of work, shimmering with ruby tandoh’s fierce, enquiring intelligence” – Marina O’Loughlin

“a salutary reminder that food is about nourishment in all its senses- thank you Ruby for putting the pleasure back into eating” – Helen Goh

“Eat Up! is a joyous manifesto for flavour and sanity. It will give you more nourishment and wellness – not to mention waffles! – than any number of clean eating books. Tandoh takes in everything from Nepalese chicken dumplings to the science of taste; from blackberrying to the films of Alfred Hitchcock. Ruby Tandoh has written a genre-busting antidote to food-anxiety. You come away from it feeling braver and determined to eat with more freedom and gusto. I loved it.”  – Bee Wilson
