    I didn’t realise that she’d written that. I’ve been drawn to it, simply attracted by the title but trying to fight the urge to open it. And now, I think I have to give in.

    Plum, you’re just a sucker when it comes to cookbooks! Have yousucumbed to Tessa Kiros’ Falling Cloudberries yet? I had that out of the Christchurch library for ages and loved it.

    As regards Roast Figs, Sugar Snow you might be best off waiting until the weather turns a little cooler to buy it. I can’t help thinking that recipes for Toasted Ginger Cake, Georgian Cheese Pies and Irish Stew might not be the best dishes for a roasting hot Melbourne summer! At least you’ll be over your detox diet at that stage too…

    Ooh yes, I found Falling Cloudberries on sale a while ago but haven’t had the time to get stuck into it properly. And I don’t want to get too inspired during this month!!

    Too much inspiration is sometimes nearly worse than none at all, especially when you’re trying to detox! I wouldn’t like to be distracting you now, Plum…
