Happy coincidence has brought a recently-released dish onto this reviewer’s plate today. The chef, Michelle Knight (interviewed here), was already in my review queue for some time now with an older recipe but, as her newest book came up for sale, I decided to take up this newest dish instead. So is this near-future military sci-fi with a side of wit and comedy make for a fabulous meal or some bland tinned biscuits?
