About this book
Published as a small format gift book with illustrations - the perfect Christmas gift for fans of the author. Interest in Barnes continues unabated and his Booker prize-winning novel "The Sense of an Ending" was among the most popular and bestselling books of 2011. This stunning reissue of "The Pedant in the Kitchen" includes a new introduction by chef Mark Hix.
