Review quote

"One of the funniest, wisest, and most unorthodox cookbooks ever written."
--Craig Claiborne, The New York Times "The Supper of the Lamb is a rare, distilling nectar, albeit fizzy with bubbles of humor and wit...it is fully capable of rescuing us from the dangers of mediocrity daily foisted upon us by the too-fast pace of our lives."
--From the Introduction by Deborah Madison "The Supper of the Lamb is as awesomely funny, wise, beautiful, moving, preposterous a book as this reviewer has come across for years....It is a love letter to a world that 'will always be more delicious
than it is useful.'"
--The New York Times Book Review
