Food writer and author

As useful and as scholarly as any of her books, but much more fun. It's indefatigable - there are even sections on pit cooking abd baking in clay. One moment you are reading a nostalgic account of childhood picnics in Egypt - and evocative food to match - the next you are bang up to date with the current fascination for smoking and barbecuing. Timeless.

I love the way it changed my idea of picnics from oranges with sand on them and hard boiled eggs to something less reminiscent of a 70's childhood.
