Description

'The writer who never talks about eating, about appetite, hunger, food, about cooks and meals, arouses my suspicion, as though some vital element were missing in him' Scholarly, playful, idiosyncratic and witty, Aldo Buzzi's The Perfect Egg is an excursion into the food that has obsessed, provoked and intrigued the author through his life. A book of genial and highly refined chat, enriched with personal anecdotes, recipes and quotations from literature and history, it is a tribute to the profound pleasures of food.
