Somewhere in the blog world I came across Viana La Place, and I was inspired to buy two of her cookbooks! She’s quite delightful and her cookbooks are actually a pleasure to read…somehow they capture the mood of a lazy summer afternoon when a simple tomato salad would do the trick. A blend of California and Italian images runs through the books and the recipes are so simple that they’re often not even like recipes–more like just making some food. They rely on having the perfect seasonal and ripe ingredients–not the kind of thing that you can pull off any old day. But they remind you of what you’re striving for, a nice garden that allows you to put together a simple meal that is delicious! Great reads really, you should check them out!
