    this book was read to me while I cooked dinners so I missed out a lot of details making sure the garlic would not burn or the pasta did not over cook - however the only memorable person in the book was his wife, of Italian heritage whose emotional explosions are told in a funny and endearing way by someone too British to ever emote - even to the worst disaster. Frustrating when you are battling your own pots and pan battles!
