    >Starting with the Thanksgiving turkey that never quite finishes cooking, then moving to the polenta that unceremoniously goes runny and the guests who arrive a day early - there is no topic Tess Rafferty fails to encounter, or hilariously recount. Recipes for Disaster is as though Bridget Jones wrote a culinary narrative - the most pristine of intentions slowly disappear, as does the wine, along with any hope of a seamless and well-orchestrated dinner party.

    If you could sum up Recipes for Disaster in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, Honest, Culinary


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved how Tess built little stories centered around a recipe, and then gave us the recipe at the end of the chapter


    Which character – as performed by Tess Rafferty – was your favorite?

    Tess


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    As someone who loves to entertain, I could SOOOO indentify with Tess. Her feeling of success with a meal done right and her frustration when things don't go as planned. Would love to read a similar book, it was a great blend of humor and memoir with lots of great entertaining tips mixed in!
