And that's some of the gastronomy inspiration I'm reading this season, the romantic and right laugh novel Sal de vainilla 🤎
and Teoria i pràctica del vermut, a detailed book with historical and practical information about this beverage, that in Spain is more than a drink, the vermut!

This book has a love collection of short stories set in out of this world... we sure can say it's a funny and clever tiny syfy novels collection, and my favourite one is Hombres por correo Lohmann so far...
In a few days, I'll attend an event with the writer, and many other ladies who read and drink wine...Will be my first time with them, and I'm so excited! 😋

I'm reading Afrodite from the impressive Isabel Allende, a Chilean writer.
That book is about afrodisiac ingredients and recipes, and almost of them are notes telling her experiences, plenty of sensuality, and erotism.

One of her more important books even becomes a movie as The house of the spirits and Of love and shadows.

It is a dramatic and beautiful story with champagne as a reference.
A man who lives many adventures during the world and national wars to maintain the legacy of the best wine and champagne maker of his time.
This occurs mainly between Catalonia and France, and reminds us of the value of resilience and perseverance.
