The talented Kate Sidley has created Dear Delilah, an agony aunt who believes that most – if not all – of life’s troubles can be solved with the appropriate plate of food. She prescribes salads for problematic husbands, Italian food for someone who needs more confidence in the kitchen and elsewhere, and infuses each recipe with suggestions that are always witty – even when they’re a little hard to digest.
