If you love cooking, and words...this book, given half a chance,
will soon be engraved on your heart. -- Rachel Cooke * Observer
This is a stunning collection of poems about the rites, rituals and adventures of cooking. Just like the best dishes, everything combines wonderfully to produce subtle tastes and thoughts which linger in the mind after the book has been closed. A delicious treat. * Bath Chronicle *

He is a marvellous poet, a man who knows his artichokes. -- Kate Kellaway * Observer *
