The other night Michael and I had a lovely 4th of July dinner at Ben and Melinda's home. A little BBQ, lots of chat about all sorts of things and a bit of girl time to talk cookbooks, the lost art of domestic home skills and the need to resurrect such skills. Then, Melinda brought out this cookbook.
It's not like I need another cookbook or that I even buy them . . .
. . . but when I picked up this book and began to peruse it's pages -
. . . I knew this was more than just a cookbook - it was an experience to be had - one to devour and enjoy of French Press coffee or a little glass of red wine. . . one to learn from.
I think it was this eggplant dish . . .
(and I'm longing for eggplant again - which will appear at our farm in just a few weeks) . . .
. . . that made me think....this just might be one to invest in.
Here's the cookbook on Amazon.
