Affectionately known in this household as The Robert Carrier Cookbook. I'm sure he wrote more but this is the only one we have. Our favourite dish from this book is the moussaka. The copy we have has particularly mucky pages around this recipe. It has been a useful reference book for classic dishes over the years.

An American living in London who learned to love food in France changed the way the world cooked. Meeting him and being his friend was very important to me; a very charming and complicated and genuine man.

A classic that is just as useful for novice and experienced cooks.
