I love food and I love books. I also love synchronicity. Today I have it all...
One of my favourite websites tastespotting led me to this site, Food for thought. What a fantastic idea. Read a book, one with references to food in it. Maybe a novel, a biography or even a cookery book. Write a review, cook the dishes and blog about it. Oh what heaven, what a simply divine concept. I have wasted, no reveled in, hours of reading and note taking this morning. The result a massive list of books I really want to read and fresh enthusiasm for trying some new recipes.
So watch out for the 'food for thought' logo and indulge yourself.
And then in The Times I found this article. Oh wonderful, a coincidence of the highest magnitude. I am inspired!
“And still she slept in azure-lidded sleep,/ In blanched linen, smooth, and lavender’d,/ While he from forth the closet brought a heap/ Of candied apple, quince, and plum, and gourd;/ With jellies soother than the creamy curd . . .” Keats
