Publishers Text

A charming, beautifully illustrated food lover's companion that takes us from a Twelfth Night cake in January to a champagne dinner on New Year's Eve and gives us a celebration of the pleasure of meals. With an entry for each day of the year, this is a book filled with culinary wisdom, recipes, history, and the author's own memories of the delicious and the disappointing.

For instance:

  • The menu on the Titanic on the fatal night
  • How the Baby Ruth candy bar got its name
  • The seductions of a velvety Brie or the perfect martini
  • John Irving's family recipe for meatballs
  • And much more!
