Recipes for Disaster: A Memoir | [Tess Rafferty]

Recipes for Disaster: A Memoir

>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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

Told with heart, humor, and honesty, this memoir goes beyond culinary catastrophe and heartwarmingly unveils the lengths we go to in order to please our family, friends, and ourselves - and proves that it’s not the food that counts, but the memories.

Aptly timed for all the Thanksgiving chefs about to enter the holiday gauntlet; or the guests headed to their dinners - this is the perfect book to listen to and then savor.

    "Right up my alley!"
    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!
