Product description

Review

'How does one go about achieving some Harry Palmer style? Details first. Remember, Palmer is a gourmet, so get hold of the Len Deighton “Action Cook Book”.’ Michael Jacovides, GQ

'Len Deighton's “Action Cook Book” is not a good cookbook. It is a shockingly good cookbook.' Paul Collins, Village Voice

'Cooking as I'd never seen it: fun, cheeky, male and promising the awesome prospect of sex…The taut clarity of Deighton's writing, his encyclopaedic knowledge and attention to detail…The prose reads like Dashiell Hammett channelling Brillat-Savarin.' Waitrose Food Illustrated

'[Len Deighton's cookbooks] have attracted cult following for their brilliant design as much as for their comprehensive approach to cooking…his democratising, demystifying approach couldn't be more appropriate.' Guardian

'They showed the idiot novice male how to dice an onion without it falling apart; how to fine-cut parsley by rocking the blade rather than chopping it; how to sauté mushrooms without them yielding the water that would turn them into a gelatinous glop.' Simon Sharma

About the Author

Len Deighton was born in London in 1929. At the age of seventeen he became a photographer attached to the R.A.F. Special Investigations Branch. Following his discharge in 1949 he did a variety of jobs and in 1952 won a scholarship to the Royal College of Art. His writing career began with The Ipcress File which was a spectacular success and was made into a classic film starring Michael Caine.
