This week’s free recipe is a little unusual. Taken from the Alice B. Toklas Cookbook, here Alice Toklas recounts the occasion on which she served Striped bass for Pablo Picasso…
Published back in September, we were pleased to see author Nicolas Lalaguna’s review of Lorca’s Sketches of Spain in The Morning Star:
“Sketches of Spain lets you bear witness to the 18-year-old folk musician Lorca discovering the poet inside. In his prologue he tells us that every book is a garden and how “lucky the man who can plant it out and blessed the man who cuts its roses and feeds his soul.” He begs the reader to look beyond the set horizons, to dream and “experience in myriad shades” the garden he is planting out before us.
For many this book will be an ongoing source of wonder and insight into the development of a beautiful mind.
For those who don’t have the opportunity to read Lorca in his own language, trust in Bush’s unpretentious and welcoming translation not to sully the melodic metaphors, along with Bell’s illustrations which act as a visual echo of the world the musician describes.
Sketches of Spain is a welcome addition to any library, doubly so for those who wish to see Spain’s past and all of our future a little differently.”
