Love the concept of this 'delicious' book. It's my new go to gift book for readers, eaters and conversationalists. Like all good meals, it leads to remembering and talking; about the book, good food, artifacts, and friendship. I've never focused on the food descriptions in many of these books and so it's like dipping back into old favorites. And, it makes me read more closely the details the author created for us. Five stars from me.
