Summer here - hot & humid. As is my summer want, The Mediterranean Cookbook. Old book, Lyric is the publisher, printed in Yugoslavia (!).
The tabouleh, fennel salad, gazpacho, falafel, cucumber salad, spinach & black-eyed peas. Everything goes so well with fresh, local shrimp at the height of the season.
Pretty simple recipes, simple fare. Easy stuff when the temps drop to 80 at night and the humidity sits around 80% as well.

I relish your posts. :)

Well since you recommended Emma Galloway I've been thoroughly enjoying her blog, haven't bought her book yet, but am tempted.

I haven't bought a new cookery book for ages, I don't really feel like I need any more and when I browse at the bookshop, nothing seems to grab me.

So I've been going back to Kitchen Diaries a lot recently, plus Madhur's Eastern Vegetarian Cooking. I've also found myself regularly looking at Alice Hart's book, although I haven't been cooking from it, just enjoying the food she serves up.

I have been avoiding buying cookbooks because we don't have room and I don't use them as much as I used to - just tried an ottolenghi recipe tonight which didn't work but the tried and tested recipe from my blog worked better (though I went through an Isa Does It phase last year) - guess that is a sign of how I cook these days. That is an outrageous comment about grains. Though at least it is easier to see through than pseudo science that is easy enough to find

About an hour ago (just before a late and lazy Sunday lunch) I decided to stop by -- not my first time during the past few months. So sorry for my absence. As the saying goes, it's not you, it's me (and a long story I will someday tell.)

My fave I'm reading/loving/being nourished by is "Julia, Child" by Kyo Maclear (words) and Julie Morstad (pictures). It's about food, friendship and unhurried delights.

Oh, I think I will love "My Darling Lemon Thyme". It will be released in Canada in November.

Your blog never fails to nourish me. Thank you. xx, elaine

hi elisa,

we've had a lot of trouble with the site for some reason (there's bound to be a technical reason, but i can't seem to fathom those :-) ) and i think my business partner kathryn's on to it. i'll email her now and see what's happening!

Oooh! I needed some cook books inspiration; and your commentary is helpful is dotting out the seemingly endless trendy cook books out there.

I completely agree about avoiding the word 'detox'. 'Toxic' (and its derivatives) is not a word that should be used lightly! That being said, I do sometimes use it to help explain certain processes in the body, or metaphorically.
