    that’s really odd! In Australia, it’s published with a beautiful rich red cover and a picture of an opened pomegranate! Much nicer than that one!You can see it here at

    Now, that Australian bookcover would make me buy it! The cover on the copy that I read isn’t appealing and it just doesn’t do justice to the contents. It’s well worth a read, Plum, especially when you interested in food enough to blog about it…

    Yourself, Kimbe, and Plum have reminded that I meant to buy this book for an Aussie friend of mine. I was visiting her last month and I kept banging on about different aspects of it! It truly is a fascinating read.
