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.

More soon,
