Starting with the Thanksgiving turkey that never quite finishes cooking, then moving to the polenta that unceremoniously goes runny; from the guests that arrive a day early to the ones who audaciously bring an ill-flavored casserole to the dinner party you’ve expertly crafted--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 heart warmingly 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 read and then savor.
