Wild Garlic: culinary memoirs
Wild Garlic entertainingly recounts the author's interest and joy in cooking and collecting recipes during her peripatetic life.
Starting in Switzerland it takes you to Colorado, where her two eldest daughters were born, and Wyoming, where her husband worked as a geologist with the Bay Petroleum Company.
In 1955 the family went back to Switzerland for a short stay and the birth of their third daughter. Then it was Italy, France, Tunisia (and a son born in Carthage) and England.

The sun is out, bank holidays are in, we all want to go and explore, although this can sometimes be ruined by the dreaded mistral (p14). But let’s not spoil things. How about a visit to St Jean du Fos (p20) or if you’re feeling more urban, a nice shopping day in Avignon with a healthy tea break (p23) or a visit to an art gallery in Nîmes?

Also in this issue, the remarkable story of a simulated space mission by Claire (p18) and a very funny article by Bernice on her pathological inability (or so she says) to learn languages (p22).
