I find that in almost every Louise Penny novel she mentions a delicious lunch, soup or sandwich that the characters are enjoying.
Her description of a ' maple cured smoked ham, apple and Brie sandwich on pain au campangne' made me want to drive up to Knowlton and ordered one at her local bistro.....mouth-watering reading for sure !
I just discovered that she has a free download called "The Nature of The Feast" ( a play on her 11th book The Nature Of The Beast) in which she offers recipes mentioned from each of her books !
One that I am tempted to try is Turnip and Apple Soup from her 11th book.
Have you ever found a food mentioned in a novel that had you googling to learn more about it ?
