Cecile was a lover of life and food. This book is a collection of her favourite recipes inspired by friends and enjoyed by family.

During her lifetime, Cecile had the opportunity to refine her craft working with some of the world's best chefs. She was inspired by their passion and dedication to food whilst surely teaching them a thing or two too!

This book features food for all occasions and seasons, from the simplest to the most impressive centrepiece plates, pasta dishes made under a searing Tuscan sun, soups enjoyed on cold London nights and moules marinieres overlooking the French Riviera. Each recipe has been cooked and inspired by a time in Cecile's life. Her speciality and pleasure were cakes and desserts, and you'll find plenty of both in this collection.

We hope you enjoy creating and eating each dish as much as Cecile did.
