In thirty five years of writing about food and cookery I have contributed articles to a very various collection of publications. From the Sunday Times to Nova, from Vogue to the Spectator, from the long defunct travel magazine Go to Cyril Ray's Compleat Imbiber, Peter Dominic's Wine Mine and quite a few others, I have put together the present volume. The bulk of the articles included were written during the decade between 1955 when I joined the Sunday Times as cookery contributor and 1965 when I launched my kitchen shop. For several of those years I was contributing a monthly article apiece to Vogue and House and Garden as well as a fortnightly one to the Sunday Times, and in 1960 had published French Provincial Cooking. In 1961, freed from the Sunday Times and the monthly stints for the Conde Nast magazines, I worked for a time for the moribund Sunday Dispatch and wrote my first contribution for the Spectator and, unexpectedly perhaps, thoroughly enjoyed writing for both publications. What matters is sympathetic editors who know how to get the best out of their contributors, and in that respect I have been, albeit with one or two notable exceptions, very fortunate.
