“Second helpings” of Rice Pudding in a Duvet, a novel which provides nourishment for the soul. 
From her warmly insulated Danish kitchen, Alice Bonneville-Beck prepares her favorite food and invites the reader the pull up a chair and listen to her charming, observant, sexy, mystical and downright stupid adventures from around the world. The book begins with a letter from Alice to her daughter, as she leaves home for the first time on how NOT to do things as she journeys through life, and of course, no self-respecting young adult would listen anyway! It’s well-meant advice, and as you read the book you learn two main things:
1. How to cook some great recipes and 
2. How to turn pages quickly to pick up tips on how the mother “went too far.”
