A trip to the book store

December 1, 2009

Now Leigh is on her own she has to start planning her meals and thinking about what she is going to prepare for herself and her family. We took a trip to Voltaire books to check out what they had to help Leigh on her continuing journey.

Below is our current list of recommended books that are all available at Voltaire Books located on the corner of Simonton and Eaton Street. These books are more about the philosophy and thoughts behind our food than cook books, but they bring to light a lot of important facts and create a deeper understanding of how and why food is so important. We opened Leighs eyes to a lot of new ideas and thoughts and now she needs to develop those through her own research and reading. There are many cook books also available at Voltaire Books and we recommend you have fun browsing through the books and finding ones that you enjoy most.
