The Taste of Memory: Food and Gardens Have Taken Marion Halligan to Some Surprising Places

Marion Halligan

This is a delightful, witty, humorous and serious book about the way we live now, as expressed in our relationship with food and gardens. ‘If you can manage to simultaneously practice laziness and purity you will eat pretty well, because the food will be simple and good.’ In prose as sensuous and seductive as a fine wine and a tasty dish, Marion Halligan takes us with her on a wandering journey into her novels, between past and present, across continents and on long sea voyages, with even a sojourn or two in France. The Taste of Memory has us sitting in gardens - or labouring in them - as well as at tables. And it celebrates the great oral tradition of cooks throughout time who pass on recipes out of the love of friends and food. The Taste of Memory invites us to look at the world and find it good.
