“The eight soon-to-be brothers feasted on rack of lamb baked in a crust of garlic and herbs, garnished with sprigs of mint, and surrounded by mashed yellow turnips swimming in butter.” - A Game of Thrones
For my first meal, I decided I would try a recipe from the new official companion…
Yum … food and books.
Watching the series “John Adams” with Paul Giamatti and Laura Linney as John and Abigail Adams made me interested in the book by David McCullough. The book is a historical narrative based on the letters of John and Abigail Adams.
My favorite part was reading Adams’ description of crossing the Atlantic-very vivid-it shows just how far we’ve come since the time of our forefathers.
this has made it onto my list of favourite books.
This is the next book I plan on getting.
