Sweet of you to mention the site and your groovy review! I see a lot of familiar spines on those shelves of yours... many quality titles in need of your prose:P

So nourished! Discovered this magical space via your Flickr morning post, am nourished on so many fronts now! Ta muchly for your lively chatter, the luscious recipes, and the nostalgic Elsternwicky air I can 'almost' feel from here in Saudi :) Such memories, and to make it even more fascinating is that all those years ago living there was midst an environment of food, as my parents had a catering business at the time.


I absolutely adore Rose Carrarini's cookbook from The Rose Bakery. Success every time. Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage Cookbook is a current fascination as well, though I've not tried any of the recipes. It's a visual treat and was only just recently released here in the States. Ina Garten's Barefoot in Paris has several of my favorites too. Then there are the Chez Panisse books for Fruits and Vegetables and Judy Rodger's Zuni Cafe - both quite inspiring. I do love a full bookshelf. Bravo to you for making space; I haven't the will power.


A dangerous invitation...


Don't get me started.

sorry 'bout that tag. Few more to go on the list, too.


Oh, and I'm really liking Skye Gyngell, who I initially resisted. Her food is delicious, particularly if you grow food you can use or shop at a market. I've seen her 2nd book on sale for $25.


Aww, I had to close that page really quickly, so I can get to bed before midnight. It will warrant a good look tomorrow though and the day after that.....


Noted. Sounds beautiful, AND inspiring.

Love, you're more than welcome. It deserves to do well that Bookshelf. More will come, I promise!

Umm Bilal:
Welcome! May you continue to be nourished, my flickr friend. Your parents ran a catering business? I think you are my long lost sister...

Ah, the Rose Bakery...now that is a beautiful book. Made the broccoli cake one day and it was actually very, very delish. I need to get into it more often. Love a bit of Hugh on the telly, I do, so will check him out. The Zuni is going on my list right now - I hear their chicken salad is a masterpiece!

I know...

Oooo...I know what I'll be doing this weekend. It'll be Library Thing a-go-go in these parts. Now. Tell me. Is Sacred Food by Luard really good? I love her stuff normally. Also, Breath of A Wok - should I get a copy?

Get thee to bed lest your Friday be utterly useless! Do check back in. You can review yourself, you know...


There's a wonderful review of the wonderful Sacred Food by Pavlov's Cat (who is a literature reviewer by profession).

Breath of a Wok is worth a borrow to read, but I wouldn't put it in the first rank if you already have a couple of Chinese books you love. Technique stuff is good.

And have you come across references to "Life is with People" woubt shetl(?) life in the Book of Jewish Food? If you're keen to read it, let me know and I'll lend you my copy. 'swonderful
