. . . and another Book Club meeting is practically upon me, even though I haven't gotten to talk about the last one yet!
I'm around page 100 or so of The School of Essential Ingredients (for some reason I keep thinking it is the Kitchen of Essential Ingredients) and it's, well, readable. A little heavy on the imagery and metaphors again for me, but it's an interesting narrative in that it uses third person POV centered on a different character each chapter. It's true at least for me that when a bunch of people get together for something like a class, there can arise some curiosity about how they got there.
Oh, and the stuff the chef-teacher Lillian makes sounds delicious. Like lick-the-page delicious.
