"Mediterranean Food of the Sun" by J. Clark and J. Farrow


It's a show piece of a cookbook focusing on the cuisine of Southern Europe and North Africa. A great read and some very nice recipes if you have an interest in this style of cuisine.

I would love to read this, but due to that youngest angel of yours, he said that "ive never read a book", so I shouldn't break my streak..

You're pushing me to my limits, OG, talking about that Picadilly style gumbo with my initials in the same sentence. Don't be surprised if something startles you in the night. It won't be your imagination. Stay away from black cats and ladders, too.
