  1. Book title "Only in Spain: A Foot-Stomping, Firecracker of a Memoir about Food, Flamenco, and Falling in Love". Short review on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1171752100

  2. Today, I finished "Comfort Me with Apples" by Ruth Reichl. It was an engaging read that I really didn't want to put down. When she writes about food, I want to cook and eat! Excellent read!

  3. Really enjoyed Marcus Samuelsson's memoir, "Yes, Chef." Very interesting and talented man.
