Egon Ronay (1915-2010), The Egon Ronay Guide – London

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

Egon Ronay, who passed away at the age of 94 on June 12, 2010, had accomplished a great deal in his effort to change horrible post-war British cooking, admitting that, “British food got the reputation it deserved.” He started the Egon Ronay’s Guide, read by a new generation of diners who thought they deserved better from restaurants than overcooked meat and soggy vegetables. He played an important part in raising culinary standards in the UK, especially for helping to change British diner’s indifference to what they were eating in restaurants, into criticism or praise.

During the 1980’s my friend, David Langlands, who has also passed away in the year 2000, wrote for the Egon Ronay Guide.
