You can just see the novel I bought recently by Ruth Reichl, called Delicious. I have enjoyed her memoirs immensely, so am hoping her first novel is equally entertaining. I loved her stories about dressing up in costume to go to restaurants when she was the NY Times food critic, hoping that she would not be recognised. She also would book under false names, something I do myself. Not because I am famous and may be recognised (ha ha), but because I am sick of spelling my name(s) and they still get it wrong. Much better to use Smith or Jones!
And I must say an extra thank you to Celia for posting me an envelope of her dried sour-dough starter. I promise to have a go at it when my knee is better! Have a great February, fellow IMK'ers!
