From avocado salad recipes discovered by the author in Cuba to grouse recipes from the Scottish moors, the author's tour de force belongs on the shelf of every serious cook.(Publisher).

Description:
"From the start every amateur chef might do well to approach his kitchen with a gleam of imminent adventure in his eye!" Yes. And while the author's feet trod solidly along bygone politically incorrect paths...still you admire his enthusiasm and the verve of his recipes. Covers have wear, the leatherette has worn off at edges and corners, and there are several dark stains; the former owner's name monogrammed in gold on front. Some pages are lightly toned, two have small stains. Otherwise a clean and sound book, no writing or highlighting. Edges are colorfully patterned.
