Additional Details

Description: Beautifully funny, delightfully flippant, and completely practical, here is a lighthearted cookbook for the single girl suddenly stranded in the kitchen. Guaranteed to do more for the bachelor girl's social life than long-lash mascara or a new discotheque dress, Saucepans and the Single Girl tells how to handle the menu and the man when A Lover with a Leica comes to dinner or A Man with a Million drops in for an evening. 

Written by two witty, young (and now happily married) girls, this swinging cookbook includes dishes that will dazzle the men in a gal's life, recipes that will convince visiting relatives that she's leading a safe and sensible existence, and hearty meals that will fill those inevitable empty evenings when she curls up with a head-full of rollers and a good book. 

With imaginative ideas and kitchen hints for every occasion -- from posh picnics and midnight snacks for two to big bashes for the gang -- here is the ideal kitchen guide for the gal who wants to make the leap from filing cabinet to flambe. 


Condition: Goodcondition. Dust jacket's back cover has a tear.
