DISHY
Gould, Kevin
Hodder & Stoughton UK 2000 1st
 Illustrated Board Cover Let's start with a review >>> The whole book had a mystique about it that greatly appealed to me. How about, 'Whole Roast Duck with Hairdryer', 'Tagliatelle with Bottarga and Red Chile' or Fresh Mint Tea with Pine nuts. I loved its retro, grungy and eclectic collection of recipes, photos and snippets. Now to the facts, its 208pp seem as quirky as our book "The Futurist Cookbook" & its 60s style endpapers are auto-happiness generators. I opened it & Date & Banana Pud appeared so I had to close it lest the keeping-temptation took hold. It has a gifty inscription inside but I tend to like those the older I get, who knows why & who knows why I'm typing that in. Just over a kilo packed for post - faults? was owned by a cook who kept it in the kitchen, its had a small splot on the cover & a ding (see pics), so not as good as our other copy.  Good/None issued
