This is the story of two unlikely friends who bonded over a love of good food. Adrienne spent a charmed life eating in some of the best restaurants, and most delightful dives, all over the world. She flirted her way into three star kitchens and became friends with many of the chefs creating the 'new' cuisine in the Sixties and Seventies. She believed all food was good food if prepared properly. Her sidekick, Joan, was a small town girl with limited exposure to haute cuisine. But dessert was her passion and pastry was her forte. Over the course of more than twenty years and thousands of meals a friendship took hold which is told here in the stories, recipes, pictures and memories which bind them together.
