Author(s): Isabel Coe
Starting with tales of her grandmother's exploits in Switzerland and Florence, Isabel's animated account progresses through Europe and the Second World War right through to the present day, with the author and her young family's recent relocation to Australia. Illustrated with b/w photographs of the people, and hand-drawn sketches of the places, that provided inspiration for the original recipes, this is a charming book that will sell well in both the cookery and gift sections. Each of the mouth-watering recipes featured throughout the text is unique, either because of its unusual blend of ingredients, its historical, personal or geographical interest, or its outstanding quality.
Isabel Coe is a former Assistant Producer with the BBC, a freelance features and news journalist, and a chocolate devotee.
