Try ignoring the bleeding heart
on 29 April 2007
An interesting enough book, with great descriptions of the cuisine and the people. Far too leftist for my tastes, but as long as you take the politics with a hefty pinch of salt or better still ignore it entirely, it's quite harmless.
The most irritating thing, however, is the overuse of italics. About half way through the book, that's going to really start getting on your nerves.
