Review:

"A wickedly funny manifesto for the hungry single girl that makes solo dining effortless as well as fabulous, with musings on the catering industries of New York, LA, Paris and London, where Pirret was a chef at Jamie Oliver's restaurant, Fifteen." --Marie Claire (UK)

'...it doesn't have to be complicated to be delicious.' 'Minimal mess, perfect meals, and a kicker for your health at the same time. This is solitary eating at its best.'
--Men's Health, June 2009

'n her first book, The Pleasure is All Mine, she is savage on the subject of rude guests, poor table manners and unappreciative recipients of her carefully prepared dishes. --The Daily Telegraph
