Recipes for Disaster by Tess Rafferty

Hardcover: 288 pages
Publisher: Thomas Dunne Books (October 30, 2012)

I never thought that I could read a humorous book about food but that is what Tess Rafferty has written.  While trying to pursue a career in the entertainment industry, Rafferty started hosting dinner parties for friends.

The former writer for The Soup has recounted many of her dinner parties over the course of almost 300 pages including some of the worst kitchen disasters she has experienced.  Rafferty even sprinkles in tips and recipes throughout the book.

She tells her story with heart, honesty, and obviously, humor.  She unveils the lengths that she went through to please her house guests and there is not a person out there who has not experienced a similar story.

The next time you think about having a dinner party for friends, read Rafferty's book.  It's as if you are right there with her.
