I eat everything.

Finished Bill Bryson's "Shakespeare: The World as Stage," and started Graham Robb's "Parisians: An Adventure History of Paris." Weekend and post-workday relaxation for me = off the grid. I love books the way I love cooking, which means, a lot. ;o)

Oh, I love that Bryson book! You may also enjoy his book, The Lost Continent—it was very interesting from a food perspective!

I've read every other book he's written. This was the last! If you liked Lost Continent (one of my favorites) you might like the much longer, somewhat different but just as interesting "Travels in Siberia," by Ian Frazier. It was built on a couple of long-reads he wrote for the New Yorker plus a couple of other freelance pieces. ;o) P.S. The other books in the Eminent Lives Series, of which Bryson's book is a part, that I've read are quite good.

Loved the Deborah Madison article. What a trip down memory lane for me. Thanks.
