Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Onions aren't the only thing in the world of food that will make you cry . . . This was the first cookbook that made me cry and laugh (and hopefully will make me a better cook too). What a loving son to take his Mother to tea - such sweet memories! Having an insight to his thoughts and life experiences, makes watching him on tv that much more enjoyable (not to mention the wonderful receipes!). I certain hope this is only the first of many to follow.
