Reviews

"A collection of 100 excellent recipes-for-one.. [Suzanne Pirret] displays a disarming blend of naked egotism, self-deprecating humor and, most important, a keen understanding of good cooking. While many of Ms. Pirret's recipes are sophisticated, they can all be produced in real-world kitchen conditions." -- Wall Street Journal
"Intoxicatingly indulgent. Cooking for yourself doesn't need to be about self-deprivation or about you're-not-worth-anything-better recipes. Pirret's hilarious recipe headnotes, fictional interludes and essays are worth the price of the book even if you don't make a single one of the dishes." -- Washington Post
