"Scholarly, playful, idiosyncratic and witty, Aldo Buzzi's The Perfect Egg is an excursion into the food that has obsessed, provoked and intrigued the author through his life."  So says the blurb on the dust jacket of this wonderfully entertaining collection of food writings. Rupert Baker reads a piece entitled "Spaghetti Bolognese, Overcooked" which will ring a bell with anyone who has a secret love of tinned rice pudding or soggy Weetabix.
