Additional Details

Description: Food and love, as Barbara Cartland reminds us, have had a close relationship all through the ages. Yet, in this day and age, they seem to be drifting apart. Fast food, TV dinners and take-aways of every description have stolen the heart out of our mealtimes, making them more of a refuelling stop than an enjoyable experience with those we love. The Romance of Food will show you again how the Art of Cooking can inspire, stimulate and satisfy and how seductive a gorgeous dish can be.  

Miss Cartland's recipes take inspiration from France, a country whose approach to food and love she admires and understands. She and her chef, Nigel Gordon, between them have devised a collection of recipes which will revive even the most jaded lover and put a song in the heart of the most enraptured. 

As well as the most aphrodisiacal selection of starters, main dishes, accompaniments and sweet treats this side of Paradise, Barbara Cartland adds fascinating footnotes to her recipes, expanding on the history, legend and magical powers associated with them. Also, to show just how irresistible to the eye as well as to the palate are dishes such as Flower of the Heart, Summer Splendor and Fleur de Lis d'Amour, they and many others have been photographed at her own home, one of the most romantic settings in England. 

With her own inimitable style, Barbara Cartland has brought the magic of her novels to the world of cookery, and shows us how to make her romantic dreams come true.
