Our current CTB read: Harlot’s Sauce by Patricia Volonakis-Davis

9 10 2011

Hello everyone!

Sorry for the delay of this post, but I am suffering from a partly dislocated shoulder which means that I have to avoid heavy-lifting and writing for prolonged periods of time, both of which are really difficult to stay away from. Anyway, this is just a reminder to let you know that the book we are currently reading is Harlot’s Sauce: A Memoir of Food, Family, Love, Loss, and Greece, by Patricia Volonakis Davis.

Harlot’s Sauce  is the story of Patricia herself who falls in love with Greek Gregori, follows him to Greece and tries to make her marriage work. In the meantime however she gives us vivid descriptions of Greek life, culture food and more.

Patricia V. Davis (http://www.patriciavdavis.com/), is also the founder and editor-in-chief of the non-partisan Harlot’s Sauce Radio e-magazine and podcast, as well as the president of Harper’s Davis Publishing.

The round hosted by me, Jo, of Food Junkie, Not Junk Food and entries are due Tuesday November 29th, 2011.  Patricia has kindly agreed to be our judge, so when your post is up please leave a comment below or email me you entry at:  jdimopoulos AT foodjunkie.eu

Looking forward to reading your entries!

Ouch! So sorry about your shoulder. Am going to order this for my Kindle ASAP. I seem to always be a beat behind these days (am just finishing A Homemade Life).

I’m hoping I have time to finish this book! With school it sometimes gets difficult. But I’m pushing through!

Thank you very much for using Harlot’s Sauce as your Cook The Books selection. I enjoyed the recipes SOOO much, and my publicist is posting them all on my website with links back to everyone’s cooking blog. We’ll send a note when they are all up. If you enjoyed the book and would like to read my second book, The Diva Doctrine: 16 Universal Principles Every Woman Needs to Know” because you have gone through so much work and trouble I would very much like to send you each a free copy. If you would like one, mail Jane at publicist@patriciaVdavis.com and she will send you one via amazon. Many, many thanks again. Off to try out all the great recipes….
