A hilarious and infuriating collection of the best pictures from the We Want Plates archives, plus unseen material.
A social media phenomenon on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, the online crusade has collected thousands of pictures of absurd, unexpected, and downright stomach-churning occasions that restaurants have shunned the ordinary plate, including soup in a stiletto, bread in a flat cap, beef Wellington on barbed wire, prawns in an iron and a phone box sandwich.
The book includes an introduction by Ross McGinnes – the man behind the crusade – and a foreword by the Sunday Times’ restaurant critic Marina O’Loughlin.
