Purchase Epicuria: Adventures that Really Cook!
Just few weeks left before Valentine's Day. There are probably a few of us out there that haven’t grasped the idea that Valentine's Day is coming up fast. Let me offer this bit of advice. A phone card from the local drugstore bought and Rose will not garner much appreciation from the one you love. Here is the answer. I still have a few copies of Epicuria: Adventures That Really Cook! that could be signed by the author and picked up here in Charlotte County before the big day arrives or if ordered promptly USPS to you anywhere in the country. You can order it here. Happy Valentine's Day!
Ever since reading Cross Creek Cookery by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, I have savored the mixture of recipe and story, and now I have feasted on a tasty second course: Epicuria: Adventures That Really Cook! by Court Nederveld. Whereas Rawlings uses an anecdotal format, Nederveld has concocted a delicious adventure in which his family’s recipes serve as the magic ingredients to deliver him from Epicuria, a realm in the neighborhood of Alice’s Wonderland. As a hero of unlikely kitchens, he tosses salads, bakes chicken, and whips up desserts to rescue unfortunates and beat villains. His quest is no half-baked fantasy, but rather a scrumptious metaphor for life. What else would I expect from a writer who bicycles 25 miles to eat Sunday breakfast at a cafe, established in 1929, in the historic town near my home–but that’s an appetizer for another book!
