Foodie Book Club

The host will pick a foodie book every month for you to read.  You will need to source the book yourself, so dowload an e-book, check out the local library, or visit Unity Books and build up your foodie home library. 

Then we'll get together to discuss the book.  The host will provide some nibbles in keeping with the theme of the book.

FOODIE BOOK FOR AUGUST:
Rosewater and Sodabread
Marsha Mehran

The story of three Iranian sisters who have taken up residence in the quaint Irish town of Ballinacroagh. Opening the beguiling Babylon Café, they charm the locals with their warm hearts and delectable Persian cuisine, bringing a saffron-scented spice to the once-sleepy
village.

    Hello,
    Does anybody have a copy of the book I could borrow? I have reserved one from the city library and in theory it should be back about a week before we meet. If you have a library copy would you mind returning it as soon as you finish so I can get it a little quicker. Or any other ideas of how I can get hold of the book. Cheers,
    Alison
