    This book is lovely.It really showcases generosity of spirit,how to have fun,how to eat and drink well,how to live well.I love the way in which the book brings together many of the simple things that make life great.Creating,relaxing,cooking a feast for family or friends,are just a few of the things that are highlights in this book.I am so pleased to find a beautifully produced cookbook,that is also usable,timeless,and highly practical.After thirty years of cooking,entertaining,and reading hundreds of books about eating,this has moved into my top ten.
