By turns reverent and playful, learned and whimsical, the author’s evocation of taste and place brings to life a wealth of memory and observations about food – through the day, the season, and the year. In this beautifully illustrated journal, Sara ranges from field to farm to market and table, gathering fruits and vegetables, herbs and spices, cheese and oils and sweets, and pausing for colourful asides on history and customs. In this marriage of art and prose, Sara searches for and celebrates the perfect mug, flowers for the table, mint tea in Morocco, and edible rice paper in Japan as well as a multitude of other pleasures along the way.
A richly personal celebration of all things food, rendered in the artist’s enchanting watercolours.
