Our next book is Heat by Bill Buford. This is a book that promises to take us back into the frenzy of the professional kitchen, so I hope you enjoy it. It also has the subtitle " An amateur's adventures as kitchen slave, line cook, pasta-maker, and apprentice to a Dante-quoting butcher in Tuscany." What's not to like about that?

We will meet as usual in the Summertown Wine Cafe.

Dear all

 

the outline of the event is still being drawn at the time of printing but I would like to know already if you would be interested in attending as we will have to confirm numbers to our hosts very soon!

The book focuses on the cuisine of South West France and mixes recipes with insights into the region, its people and its culture. My copy has only just arrived, but I am already hungry. Because of the nature of this book we are going to make this next meeting a potluck get together at my house in Oxford. The idea is to bring along a dish from the book (more or less) to fuel our chat. I hope it sounds good - I'm planning to put together one of the soup recipes to warm up the evening. When you know if you can make it, please send me an email and I'll send out directions to my house.
