Top Customer Reviews
"To sterilise your kitchen cloths and sponges - microwave them on high for a minute"
"Don't just season your salad dressings, season the salad itself before dressing it"
and lovely little quotes:
"The only time to eat diet food is while you are waiting for the steak to cook" (Julia Child),
"Cauliflower is nothing but a cabbage with a college education" (Mark Twain)
Notebook sized, but with just under 200 pages, this will appeal to most cooks, from the beginner to the most experienced. Wit and wisdom are served up in bite-sized pieces and are easily digested.
the problem is that the cover is covered in textile and there is a label on the back that when you try to remove it leaves all the glue on the textile.
The book has many inspirational pages within it and would make a great gift to food lovers or wannabee chefs. There is plenty of good advice within the book, along with humour and wit from many famous faces.
The book has been compiled by Lewis Esson, who is an experienced editor of food books and this book shows a vast experience of life within the world of food.
