What a wonderful book! It was recommended to me by an older family friend who had learnt that I had recently married. I feel that it was her way of trying to tell me what she had learnt in a very long marriage without being intrusive or patronizing. And I'm so glad she did! Whether you're passionate about food, eating it or preparing it, or even if you're not this book is a warm, intelligent 'can't put it down' kind of read. 'Recipes for a Perfect Marriage' should be handed to persons ,young and old, as a manual on getting through life with another person. It offers up humour, comfort, brute honesty and a wisdom that you could sadly go a lifetime without knowing. Kate Kerrigan is an emotionally intelligent genius with a beautiful flair for writing. She clearly writes from the heart. My Marriage and outlook on life is better for having read this delightful book. Read it if you want to understand life and love better!
