if like a lot of people you are weathering the ‘ current economic climate’ by holidaying at home, why not enjoy some summer reading to transport you to faraway shores…and maybe pick up some ideas for dinner while you’re there?!

try ‘eat, pray, love’ by elizabeth gilbert, ‘bella tuscany’ by frances mayes or ‘the food of love’ by anthony cappella for a taste of la dolce vita in itlay…if your tastes include historical fiction, don’t miss sarah dunant’s books, ‘in the company of the courtesan’ and ‘the birth of venus’…delicious reading!!
