In this book, ex-Foreign Catering Corps Chef Rene La Sagne, now a celebrity restauranteur, teaches ex-Legionnaire Serge, the art of the kitchen. But for such brave men, so many of them find a kitchen a No Man's Land.

In this book Rene teaches men how to go from buttered toast to dinner party host! You will learn not only the basics, but also how to fend for yourself in the dinner party war game...By the end of this book, you will be able to entertain that special date, new friends and astonished family members. Cooking with confidence will give you a new independence and be prepared for anything - including that first date, so it's not a case of 'oh no! She's a veggie!'
