How Audrey Ate...

"At home Audrey didn't like fancy food. She much preferred a simple meal that was exquisitely done — a perfectly cooked steak, a beautiful salad, some raspberries. When she entertained ("which is not, please, capital-E entertain"), she would have six or eight friends over for a dinner of, say, spaghetti, a mixed salad including whatever was in season, and a lovely chocolate mousse for dessert. Doris Brynner, who lived near Audrey in Switzerland, remembers that Audrey loved pasta. She also admits that as a treat when their husbands were away, the two women would indulge in vanilla ice cream with chocolate fudge sauce." -Pamela Clarke Keogh
