    It was a great night and I think the relaxed atmosphere was all thanks to you girls having everything so organised. (Lucy too).

    I was looking at your list of ‘food books’ that you have liste on your blog and I was wondering if you have ever read Honey from a Weed by Patience Grey? She was a fab. (UK) foodie writer for her time. Beautiful prose and foodie treats too.

    Thanks again.

      The books that I have mentioned online here are only the very tip of the iceberg, as I discovered when packing them all up! I do indeed have Honey from a Weed and must dig it out again. You’re right – it is a lovely read.

      Great to meet you the other night, Mona. Hope you have a great time in Germany!

    You know me, I never pass up an opportunity to eat good food! I do sense a bit of a pattern here when we get together…
