This month we have just two books for you. The first is Easy Weekends by Neil Perry. As we always enjoys Neil books, we were more than happy to review this fun, lazy days cookery book. The second is Marie Claire: 10 Years of Great Food with Michele Cranston. So, it has been for ten years that we have been enjoying the trendy food ideas that Marie Claire has brought us.
