Summary

When it comes to pastimes in Palm Springs, dining out is #1. But with more than six hundred eating establishments dotting the area from Desert Hot Springs to Indio, choosing the perfect lunch spot could pose a major problem. Local food writer Peter Osbaldeston aids hungry vacationers with his second edition of this inclusive guide, profiling the ultimate in Palm Springs cuisine. Only the high and low points are addressed, whether it is the chef’s credentials, the building’s history, or the ingredients in the main dish.  Imagine waiting in line for hours only to discover that the building is less than pristine, the hollandaise sauce has the consistency of diesel fuel, and the background music is loud and irritating. Osbaldeston comes to the rescue with vivid descriptions that capture the essence and atmosphere as only a local can. He brings to life the “subtle flavors of the lobster marry[ing] at once with the sparkling pea bisque” at Azur in La Quinta, or “one of the most potent assaults of wild-mushroom aromas” at Johannes in Palm Springs. Knowing exactly what to expect, every tourist can dine like a native in the luxurious Coachella Valley.

    When our hero, Victor, needs a pseudonym to avoid embarrassing his wife after deciding to pen a book about up-sticking to Greece, he dusts off his original name of V. D. Bucket, the name he was stuck with after being abandoned in a bucket as a baby. As Victor adapts to his adopted homeland, he battles an obsession with the exacting hygiene standards he demanded during his illustrious career as a public health inspector, against the rather less exacting standards of rural Greece. His attempts to master the complexities of the language lead to a number of embarrassing misunderstandings.Crossing paths with the local undertaker, Spiros, was a stroke of good luck for Victor and Marigold, since Spiros just happened to have a house to sell in the charming Greek mountain village of Meli. Of course Spiros didn't explain the strange arrangement of an Albanian living in the stone shed at the bottom of the garden, or mention the old lady's next door filthy habit of burning plastic every morning. He also failed to mention his late uncle had plunged to his death from the roof terrace, but did a wonderful job of selling them on the spectacular views.
