I think this may have been the 4th of currently 40 books that Val has written and one that I have been returning to for 25 years. As in life around a dinner table, Val's stories never fail to entertain and they create a further interest in a recipe. Her autobiographical, Fiori di Zucca is packed with the most amazing family history - as well as recipes.

I found this in an antiquarian booksellers in Broadstairs. I have never stopped using it for its clarity and simplicity. Hail to the President of the Les Dames d' Escoffier London Chapter!
