The Obituary column in issue 26/2010 of The Economist is remembering Egon Ronay, food and restaurant critic of Hungarian origin. Egon Ronay left Hungary in 1946, and, being repulsed by the quality of British cuisine back then, started to travel the country, looking for good restaurants, pubs, station buffets, practically any place that served food. His guide appeared in 1957. He is mentioned among the first influential people to change British food. Egon Ronay died at the age of 94.
