    A friend and I once played a game whereby we summed each other up with one word. "You're all about flavor," was her conclusion for me. I loved that and it is so true. I see life and all our varied experiences in terms of flavor. For every experience in life is a corresponding food type. There are the daring adventures like first time forays into ethnic foods. Nourishing and replenishing times for chicken soup. Celebrations topped with decadent desserts shared with friends and family. We each have our guilty pleasures like chips and salsa. We have old standbys like brown rice. All foods and experience taste much better when shared with others. We still talk about the 6 course meal we had in Italy when a friend's father cooked us up quite a feast. We still remember the homemade cakes made for our birthdays. The collaborative casseroles created with friends on a cold winter night. The homemade eggnog spiked with fresh nutmeg at Christmas time.

    So imagine my enjoyment when I purchased this new book by Marietta McCarty, "The Philosopher's Table"--a book all about the many great flavors of life! Recipes, music, philosophy and conversation topics from all over the world. It's a great way to travel around the globe without leaving your hometown.

    The other thing that I love about it is that you do not have to be a cook to savor this enjoyable book! There is so much wisdom on each page. I generally like to highlight favorite lines in books but I found myself wanting to do this with just about every line! It is so tastefully written in such an inviting, friendly tone Marietta has with all of her books. I can say for myself that I am not much of a big cook but I do love food, good company and conversation. (doesn't everyone?) I plan to attend some dinner parties this winter with friends who read the book.

    This book is a wonderful gift for anyone!
