Maureen: This book was Book of the Year by Waterstones in 2012. It even beat Hilary Mantel’s, “Bring Up the Bodies,” which has won every book award possible in the past year.
Kirstin: That’s really interesting because I”m not sure I’m going to make anything, but the pictures look amazing.
Maureen: The pictures are beautiful. There also seems to be a lot to read about Venice, which is always nice. It makes me want to go back to Venice.
Kirstin: I’d be happy to go back to Venice.
Maureen: But the recipes look very ambitious, which is a good thing.
Kirstin: We need to do more ambitious things occasionally.
Maureen: Once I get past my fear that these are going to be too complicated, there seems to be a lot of really good recipes in here. I’ve already bookmarked 12, and I’m not even finished yet.
Kirstin: There’s a pizza recipe. We could do that on Pizza Night!
Maureen: Tim never wants to try a new pizza recipe for pizza night because he thinks he’s perfected his recipe, which I think he has. But I think we’ll eat well this month. Yeah for Polpo!
