BOOK REVIEWS

I love cookbooks, because they are telepathic; a direct link to the minds who thought it wise to pen their experiences.

Reading recipes is exploring the past, and bringing those sights and smells into existence (and adjusting to suit the needs of my family!) is one of my core passions.

I hope you’ll find my book reviews informative and enlightening, from my kitchen to yours!
