  • Jay Rayner's restaurant reviews are dependable: On the "development chef," John Burton-Race of Harvey's of Ramsgate: "I don't like him. I would rather eat my own feet than have anything to do with him, and my feet are really horrible. I detest him because he and I once spent a night in a Manchester bar, during which I had to listen to his views on women, how to raise children, and what growing up in Africa was like, opinions which were not likely to win him friends any day soon."
