Book: “The goodness of olive oil”

Whenever there is book fair, I irremediably go to the art, poetry and cooking sections. I like cooking books that are beautiful and simple, and where I may learn a thing or two. And if a book can bring together cooking, poetry and art, well all the better!


Today, I found this little gem of a book at a secondhand bookstore. I am delighted. The text is an enchantment to read and the watercolour illustrations a delight. Some nice recipes are included as well.
