“There are certain journeys you make in your lifetime that stick with you always. You remember the feel of the air on your skin, the quality of the light, the food you ate, the smells that wafted in the air. Most of all, you remember how you felt about the person you were with. And how you felt about yourself.”
When I wrote those lines in Map of the Heart, I was taking notes during a memorable meal at an outdoor cafe at the harbor of Cassis in the south of France. A terrific storm was raging, and I was grateful for the delicious, comforting gratinee and local wine.
Comfort food is a perfect pairing with stormy weather, no?
All this by way of saying that you should come and have lunch or dinner with me.
On August 13, the Inn at Port Ludlow is offering an early release of Map of the Heart with a cocktail reception and 5-course Provence-themed dinner.
