This week I am joining Jain at Once in a Blue Moon for her new event beginning on January 16.
Food and reading are a perfect match. I love to read and primarily use my Kindle but every so often I come across a book I have to have in hard or soft cover. Tuscany for Beginners is such a book. Brits living in Tuscany rule the roost and believe that they are the true royalty of the region. Egos abound and the recipes are a travesty to good Italian cooking. The book is just amusing and a good belly laugh or two are contained between the covers.
Imogen Edwards-Jones captures the lives of her characters with great wit and understanding of human nature. I most likely would not try any of the recipes (particularly as the book progresses) but I have developed a fondness for Prosecco!
This a book about perception and reality. It is truly a good read. I keep a copy in my guest room and all who have read it have been truly amused. I hope you will enjoy it as well.
