The best book?


What cookbook would you grab if you had time, in fleeing The Flood, The Quake, The Fire?

Tricky.

One of mine, stuffed into the cat's carrier with passports - if we're lucky - would be Patricia Wells' French Bistro Cooking. It is not glamorous. It has a soft cover. There are no photos. But it has fine stories and recipes that make me turn its pages just for pleasure. I have owned it forever.

The Frenchman tells me this: If it's a quake, you go under the table. Nowhere else.

If it's a fire, you take nothing. You just go.

He hasn't said anything about floods. Yet.
