I am currently wrapped up in reading a book that I was asked to read and review for TLC Book Tours. It’s called Life From Scratch: A Memoir of Food, Family, and ForgivenessLife From Scratch and I can only say that it’s really good! My review of the book is scheduled for March 12, 2015 and I am already thinking about how I am going to put my blog post together for it. It’s a memoir of growing up under difficult circumstances but with an abundance of love and memories with ties to people, places, and food.
The author is Sasha Martin and the book is already drawing lots of attention. I am her newest follower on Facebook where I saw a post that her book was recognized by Oprah’s Reading Room. She also writes a blog called Global Table Adventure where she blogs about cooking for 195 weeks the 195 foods from 195 countries around the world. Amazing, ambitious and inspiring to be sure! So, in addition to reading her memoir, I am also busy digging in to all the amazing blog posts of the recipes and foods she’s cooked from every corner of the world. Go ahead. Pick a country and see what she came up with. Who knows…it might just be just what you need for tonight’s menu. : )
You can find it on Life From Scratch: A Memoir of Food, Family, and ForgivenessAmazon and it’s available for pre-order. The book will be released on next Tuesday, March 3rd by National Geographic Press.
