Appetite: A Memoir in Recipes of Family and Food is a very good idea for a book – an excellent, innovative way to make the well-worn genre of political memoir come alive. It avoids all the bear traps and clichés with its honesty and humour – and its excellent recipes, many of them memories of childhood. Delia Smith thought the book delightful, Stephen Fry said it was wonderful and Caitlin Moran wrote that it was a big, joyous hug of a book. Appetite adds yet another dimension to the life of this former cabinet minister who proves that he can cook even better than he can dance. And Ed might also have one or two comments about parties, and not only the catering.
