Taking time out yesterday was an absolute luxury, having been working in every spare moment for the past few months (including weekends and holidays) on my latest book to be released later in the year. It was the first weekend where I felt free enough to get back to the delight of actually reading during the day.....on a weekend of course! I've had this book for several months but waited till I had time to immerse myself in the stories and having done so today I have to tell you about it... it’s a jewel! With friends we had visited Lino and Kim at La Paloma Pottery when lunching with Luke Sciberras at Hill End. This book brings back memories of an amazing weekend where we glimpsed the Food, Fire and Art (and music) that they live by. The stories and the amazing photographs of the artists who had visited and eaten Lino's food are so seductive. Hill End is of importance to me on another level and that is of the Ackermann's House, the house of my forebears run by a cousin Lorraine who has restored the original cottage and lives there.... such history and the amazing characters who call this historic village home demands a return visit! - MB
