Praise for Action Cook Book:

'Len Deighton's Action Cook Book is not a good cookbook. It is a shockingly good cookbook' Village Voice

'How does one go about achieving some Harry Palmer style? Details first. Remember, Palmer is a gourmet, so get hold of the Len Deighton Action Cook Book'
GQ magazine

'Cooking as I'd never seen it: fun, cheeky, male and promising the awesome prospect of sex... The taut clarity of Deighton's writing, his encyclopaedic knowledge and attention to detail... The prose reads like Dashiell Hammett channelling Brillat-Savarin' Waitrose Food Illustrated

'They showed the idiot novice male how to dice an onion without it falling apart; how to fine-cut parsley by rocking the blade rather than chopping it; how to saut� mushrooms without them yielding the water that would turn them into gelatinous glop' SIMON SCHAMA

'As packed full with information as an egg is iwth meat. Although he barely assumes that his readers know where their mouoths are at the outset he never appears to be wasting time going over old ground. It is his freshness, in all his text as well as in the brilliant idea of the strips themselves, which puts him among the most attractive and usable cookery writers we have'
The Journal of the Wine & Food Society
