TITLE: THE ENTERTAINING BOOK

AUTHOR: Teresa and Auberon Waugh; illustrated by Glynn Boyd Harte

PUBLISHER, COPYRIGHT INFO: Hamish Hamilton, 1986

DESCRIPTION: Hardcover with dust jacket, 7" x 9 1/4", 187 pp.

BLURB/FLYLEAF: Here, laid out month by month, is a series of delectable recipes, backed up by Auberon Waugh's sage and often contentious views on what to drink with what. It is a seasonal book because Teresa Waugh avoids tins and frozen packages, and concentrates on what is properly in season. It is also a witty and in both senses and entertaining book, because husband and wife explain, and indulge in nostalgia, occasionally denounce and even quarrel.

So here are nourishing soups and casseroles for the winter; the best way of dealing with leftovers (in particular the dreaded turkey); how to prepare bollito misto and oeufs a la creme, sformato and canard aux olives, ratatouille and baked gammon, summer pudding and chocolate biscuit cake, and a hundred and one other delectable dishes. None is too complicated or too time-consuming. All make the gastric juices surge. And the selection of wines is ingenious and satisfying, by no means concentrating on rare vintages, but investigating the byways, both in price and region. Decorated by Glynn Boyd Harte's evocative drawings, this book is perfect for both the kitchen and bedside.

CONDITION BOOK: Very Good+, with tight and square binding, clean and bright pages; book appears unread.

CONDITION DUST JACKET: Very Good-, with overall shelf wear especially at the edges; rubbing/scuffing, a few small rips/chips.
