Book Description

13 Sep 2004
Recipes for Disasters is all about how to cope when you have friends for dinner and suddenly everything goes wrong in the kitchen - you burn the meat, or you forgot to turn the oven on, or the pudding won't turn out, or the meringues have gone soggy. The book takes a light hearted but deeply practical look at solving the kind of problems that most often crop up, and has quick-fix solutions to classic problems like lumpy mashed potatoes or curdled sauces. As well as last minute emergency measures, Recipes for Disasters promotes a new and creative approach to cooking that helps prevent cock-ups in future and shows the reader how to be more laid back in the kitchen.

Review

Mutton dressed as lamb The mash is lumpy, the gravy watery and the fillet steak useless - your guest is a newly converted vegan. What to do? Recipes For Disasters by Roni Jay tells you how to turn a culinary disaster into a gastronomic treat without anyone having to know. Entertaining's all about appearances after all.... THE PARTY MAGAZINE

About the Author

Roni Jay is a professional writer. What few people realise, least of all those who have tasted her cooking, is that she is also a trained chef. OK, so it was 25 years ago. Still, a little knowledge is a wonderful thing, and in this case it has given Roni both the ability to cock-up in the kitchen and the knowledge to cover up her mistakes.

First Sentence
How frustrating. I hate that thing of prancing round the kitchen trying every possible angle of attack on some stubborn dish that refuses to release its grip. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars laugh and learn 24 Nov 2004
Format:Paperback
This is a really funny book, and also genuinely useful for all those kitchen mistakes I have all too often. It covers everything - things that burn, don't rise, don't turn out etc, and emergencies like extra guests turning up unexpectedly. I bought it after I read about it in the Daily Telegraph, and have since bought several copies for Christmas presents for friends who joke about being awful cooks. It's a great book because you can't get that upset when things go wrong when it makes you laugh about it.
