This month's book was The Magician's Wife by Brian Moore. Set in the 1850s, in France and Algeria, it was a good read, and made us all realize how little French history we knew.
I think it's fun to try to match food to the book, so we had French wines and cheese, and then a couple of Algerian-inspired dishes, couscous, sweet lamb, and Fig, Date and Walnut drops. Quite yummy, if I say so myself.
Next month, Nectar in a Sieve.
