Weekly story 44

Last week read these two awesome books

The Bastard of Istanbul by Elif Shafaq - story is set in Istanbul ,and each chapter starts with a ingredient like cinnamon,cardamom,truly luved this book,vivid description of food,culture ,lifestyle .Story has two main characters Asya and Armanoush,while Asya is born and brought up in Istanbul ,Armanoush is Armenian American.What happens when they meet ,how their belief change this is what the book is about,..
Recipe for Life by Nicky Pellegrino - " I think cooking is the most intimate thing you can do for someone ,'he said softly .'I make something for you with my hands and hen you put it inside your body.What could be more intimate thant that ?' Quote from the book :-)
this one is again about women and for women,if you guys luv food specially italian then you have to read this book,while reading this book i felt as if i was in Villa Rosa at Triento.
some of the quotes which were really inspiring from the book Recipes for Life
-Your time is limited so dont waste it living someone else's life .
-The thing about working a lot is that you never have a chance to worry about things that have happened or   things that are going to happen.It forces you to live in the moment.
- " Do you ever get a sense of detachment from your own life ? So often i do something like put my keys in the door and can't quiet believe it's my door and my life."

A friend gave me a book for my birthday and it's called "Life is Meals' and it's written by a husband & wife team who cook together. It has a read for each day with little anecdotal stories about food & meals & people! I am quite enjoying it! Angie xo
