There wasn't a ton to discuss about this book, except Shiro's life and the beautiful book design. If you didn't get a chance to read it, you should at least take a peek...it is gorgeous!
We are still talking about trying to do a dinner out at his restaurant. Bring your calendar to the next meeting, and we will try to pick a date.

Next month we are taking it easy and reading a kids book, Madame Pamplemousse and Her Incredible Edibles by Rupert Kingfisher. Think French, silly, and tasty!
We are also taking up a collection to thank the church for letting us use their wonderful dining hall and kitchen for our group, so please bring some cash to chip in!
