World Book Day
Today is world book day and this gives me the incentive to get on and write about these two fabulous books. They were published sometime ago now but with one thing and another, not least the massive pile of books to be read by my bed, I read them over the Christmas break. Collette Rossant has writtwen a beautiful account of her early childhood in Eygpt (Apricots on the Nile) and then later in Paris and her early married life (Return to Paris). The descriptions are mouth watering and there are even recipes. It all just makes me want to get out there and browse the markets and unusual shops for new and exciting ingredients!
