As Great As Her Cookbooks
on January 29, 2009
Wow! I've been using Moira Hodgson's cookbooks for years, as she always has a sensational new twist on the old standards that wins me raves at my dinner parties. And her restaurant reviews in the New York Observer newspaper are not only fun to read, they're also very reliable as she gets all the details right. So I was eager to read this book, and, no surprise here --- it's absolutely great! She makes you feel like you're on an exotic adventure with your new best friend, who just happens to be a tall, brilliant, gorgeous goddess. I stayed up all night to finish it. The only way it could have been better is if I'd been reading it while hurtling through the darkness on the Orient Express to parts unknown...
