From the back cover:

“There’s nothing quite so irritating as a recipe that stubbornly refuses to work! The dish looks good in the glossy picture, you’ve followed the recipe slavishly, but still you end up with a flop on your hands. The recipes in this book are different, because they all work.

Recommends it for: cooks and those who enjoy reading about cooking
A delightfully readable and entertaining bedside-reading book; though one I haven't actually cooked anything from ... yet. Sweetbreads in onion and parsley sauce will, I think, be the first. That should be a good test as to whether the recipe works or flops.

This book is oddly titled; rather overdramatic really. I like the "Culinary Memoir" bit much better, because that's spot-on & part of the attraction of this book. Isn’t it funny how often one remembers an event or an occasion by what one
