Description

James Barber is back with a lively reprint of his popular Cooking for Two--"Cooking, like sex and dancing, is a pleasure best shared. This is a book about what two people can do with their own four hands, and not a lot of time."

Barber's saucy style and matchless gusto have made him a favourite of cooks, and wannabe cooks, worldwide. In Cooking for Two, he emphasizes having fun with a partner in the kitchen: "It ought to be a shared courtship, a foreplay to the intimacy of a shared dinner. 'Let's cook supper' will do a lot more for your relationship than 'I'm cooking. Leave me alone.'" Barber's well-known and easy manner of food preparation is once again a pleasure to read and to follow, often bringing a chuckle to the cooks and certainly bringing a large measure of satisfaction with the delicious
results.

"[Barber] shared with his many fans his surprise that food preparation had been hidden behind a wall of jargon and false expertise"
