It has been brought to my attention by my colleagues at the Improvisation Standards Board, Canberra Region, that all is not well in terms of spontaneous and creative cooking. People generally are not very good at having fun in the kitchen and producing something even vaguely edible at the same time. It is in response to this appalling state of affairs that the ISB has produced its informative booklet Recipes for Improvisation which, if followed precisely, will result in the manufacture of satisfying and totally spur-of-the-moment meals. It is to this indispensable booklet that I now turn in order to teach you the proper way to do things. Sit up and pay attention.
