7th Printing. Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “One of the nation’s best-loved cooks, Clarissa has lived her life on a grand scale. Her mother was an Australian heiress, her father a brilliant surgeon. But he was also a tyrannical and violent drunk. Clarissa was determined and clever though and her ambition led her, at the age of 21, to be the youngest woman ever called to the Bar. Disaster struck when her adored mother died suddenly. Grief led to a mind-numbing decade of over-indulgence during which she drank and partied away her entire enormous inheritance. It was a long hard road to recovery — and in the end it was cooking that brought her success, sobriety and peace. This is Clarissa’s extraordinary, humorous and heart-breaking story of a life lived passionately and resolutely on her own terms.”
