This book landed on our porch this afternoon. It just came out last week, and I was happy to order it as I am a Renee Erickson food fan. I love to eat at The Whale Wins. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was totally blown away when I opened it! The “Getaway” part is the commentary and recipes from Rome, Paris, Normandy, London, Baja, and Seattle. Included are her favorite restaurants from those places. It is a beautiful book, with the writing and all shared by some of her friends. We’re excited to cook from it and have already picked a recipe for tomorrow night!
