Hello from away!
I’ve had the fortune to have lunch with my editor for my two books while we are in Toronto. We went out to a fabulous Italian restaurant, Gusto, for lunch. [Before that I got a tour of the Scholastic headquarters–such a treat! I just love meeting passionate and talented book people!] And right now I need to tell you about the pasta. I know I’ve waxed a bit about pasta before, but this was inspired. Fresh, quite al dente in the best possible way. And covered–not smothered–in a yellow tomato and cream sauce. Basil strewn over the top. Naturally. Pasta seems so simple, but when it’s done right, you realise how easy it is to mess it up.
Runner up for deliciousness: lemon and blueberry cheesecake from Dufflet, of which I sadly have no photo.
