Read full description of the books:Starting with the Thanksgiving turkey that never quite finishes cooking, then moving to the polenta that unceremoniously goes runny and the guests that arrive a day early—there is no topic Tess Rafferty fails to encounter, or hilariously recount. Recipes for Disaster is as though Bridget Jones wrote a culinary narrative—the most pristine of intentions slowly disappear, as does the wine along with any hope of a seamless and well-orchestrated dinner party.
Told with heart, humor and honesty; this memoir goes beyond culinary catastrophe and heartwarmingly unveils the lengths we go to in order to please our family, friends, and ourselves—and proves that it's not the food that counts, but the memories. Aptly timed for all the Thanksgiving chefs about to enter the holiday gauntlet; or the guests headed to their dinners—this is the perfect book to read and then savor.
Read information about the authorTess Rafferty has spent the last 12 years of her life in a relationship with one man and the last 7 in a relationship with 5. As the only female writer on the cult comedy show, The Soup, she has skewered pop culture, parodied celebrities and helped her co-workers pick out gifts for their wives. She has frequently been seen on camera as herself, Posh Spice, a Succubus, a “Guidette” from the Jersey Shore, and perhaps most notably “The Dancing Maxi Pad.”
Her first feature film Thicker Than Water is scheduled to begin filming in April 2012 and her first book, Recipes for Disaster, a memoir of food, wine and what went wrong, will be published in Fall 2012 by St. Martin’s Press.
When she is not working 50 weeks a year writing jokes about the Kardashians, she performs stand up comedy around Los Angeles, speaks Italian, and holds herself to ridiculous standards at dinner parties.
She lives with her boyfriend and their 3 ungrateful cats. They are not married. And no, no plans to. But thank you for asking. It’s not at all uncomfortable.
