What do dictators have in common? Apparently, however bloody their regime, in the end they just want to eat food that reminds them of their mothers. Award-winning Polish journalist Witold Szablowski went to meet the chefs who cooked for some of the world’s worst tyrants. He tells Georgina Godwin all about his book ‘How To Feed A Dictator: Saddam Hussein, Idi Amin, Enver Hoxha, Fidel Castro, and Pol Pot Through the Eyes of Their Cooks’.
