Meet the girl-hungry hotel Magician, Kalakobe the African cook, Mr Sigsag, Monsieur Victor, Mespoulet and an unforgettable cast of down but not yet out hotel employees. A feast of food writing. And once you've read one Bemelmans' tale you fall in love and want to read the lot.

Review:

"The adventures of the original bad boy of the New York restaurant/ hotel underbelly continue. Whether writing about the backstairs misadventures of cooks and waiters or travel to faraway lands, Bemelmans is always funny, insightful and dead on target. No one has ever surpassed the master." (Anthony Bourdain)

"A complete original" ( Saturday Review)

"An artist in both line and words ... with talents of gold" ( Observer)

"Very entertaining ... an excellent story-teller" ( Sunday Times)

"One reads Bemelmans not as one reads a serious novelist but for the sheer momentary pleasure given by his evocation of atmosphere and mood" ( Punch)

From the Publisher:

Humorous and generous tales of kitchen life behind the scenes at the Ritz in 1920s and 1930s New York
