Publishers Text

A former CIA officer recalls her days of intrigue, espionage, and epicurean adventure.

Upon graduating from college in 1948, Kay Shaw Nelson, a bright young woman yearning to travel, joined the Central Intelligence Agency. There, she met her future husband, discovered her passion for food, and began her life of excitement. At times under the cover of a cookbook writer, Nelson accompanied her husband as they traveled the world on assignment. With humor and panache, she tells of her exploits gleaning intelligence while gathering recipes and sampling the local cuisine. Dozens of unusual recipes with memorable histories pepper this irresistible memoir of fascinating events, exotic locales, and clandestine culinary pursuits.
