A bright culinary legacy...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Big Table, Busy Kitchen: 200 Recipes for Life (Hardcover)
I read Allegra's story in the newspaper, which talks of the inspiration for this book (it tugs hard on the heart strings) and was compelled to buy a copy.
At first, seeing that I didn't really fit in with any of the 'stages of life' she describes and which give the book its structure, I initially thought its appeal would be limited but.....encountering Allegra's ballsy and wonderfully entertaining text (in and surrounding the recipes) changed all that. Her quick wit and refreshing manner meant it was a cover to cover read and each recipe drew me in further. I'm going to ignore the stages of life and discover the dishes simmering within.
