Sunday food links – 6 November 2016

My view #cyprus

We have been in Cyprus for the last week – so no cooking or recipes in the log this week. I also didn’t do that much food-related reading, opting for novels instead. I wasn’t really expecting to get much time for that, but the combination of a toddler that can now be absorbed for longer periods, plus some long afternoon naps meant I made some reasonable progress. It was lovely to have a break that felt like summer – it means I feel better about throwing myself into pre-Christmas preparations now.


The books:

  • Finally finished Death comes to Pemberley, by P.D. James – pleasantly diverting, but not much more, and occasionally felt like it was showing off the period research a bit.
  • Intended to start on A God In Ruins by Kate Atkinson, but instead got sucked into reading the previous book, Life after Life again (not sorry – still so good).
  • And The Muse by Jessie Burton (which you must have come across, as it was advertised absolutely everywhere), which I really enjoyed. A nice blend of historical romance and mystery.

I’m Louise, and I’m a compulsive baker, cookbook hoarder and a bit of a food geek. I learnt to cook at home, and later at Tante Marie’s cooking school in San Francisco. With a science degree and a background in IT analysis, I like to understand why a recipe works, not just how to do it. Why the rules are there and when they can be broken.
