So much great stuff here already … thank you everyone
One that I have, but haven’t read. Fun is good!
I had posted that in the childhood book thread. Thanks for bringing the info over to this thread! It is really a lovely endeavor!
I came upon a food blogger who has many posts on this subject! If you’re looking for more good reads check it out:
Read review of *The Widows of Malabar Hill" by Sujata Massey"!
Amazon search, select Audible, click and done!
Does anyone have a quick tip about buying audible vs Kindle when you want to switch between the two?
Delmonico’s, the haute dining superstar of 1800s New York, was a recurring setting in Caleb Carr’s the Alienist. That novel is a fun pair to Delmonico’s chef Charles Rainhoffer’s cookbook “the Epicurean”, which is a window into the past (things like “alligator pears” aka avocados, a chapter on “cooking for invalids”, and ingredients largely extinct in contemporary American (maybe even French cooking)).
Yes! I was watching that on Netflix for awhile! Should I assume the book is better?
So interesting you mentioned Alligator Pears! I hadn’t heard that in awhile, and I’m always asking husband why he calls avacodos pears!
I haven’t seen the Netflix show. Based on your question, I’m not sure I’ll seek it out Lots of audio books on this thread to try though!
It was okay. I just don’t have much patience with shows you have to watch for hours.
