Contains: Recipes; Black & white photographs; Colour photographs; Tables; Cartoons; From the cover: Gastronomy is the only pleasure in which man can indulge three times a day every day of his life. So begin the Cradocks, before taking the reader on a month-by-month gastronomic tour, revealing the secrets of the world of haute cuisine, its patrons and its pleasures.
The book gives behind-the-scenes glimpses into the kitchens, both the famous and the not so famous, as the couple remember their colourful and exotic lives and indulge in shameless name-dropping and mouth-watering descriptions of the many meals they have cooked and eaten.
Fanny and Johnnie Cradock have delighted audiences all over the country on television and the stage with their new type of cookery showmanship; they have also published many gastronomic and travel articles and books.
Whether it is the 1875 pre-phylloxera wine they tasted in one of the beautiful French chateaux, or squid caught themselves and cooked and eaten on the beach, they describe all with the same humour, verve and joie de vivre.
Each month ends with an appropriate recipe and numerous colour and black and white illustrations have been carefully selected to integrate with the text.
