I just checked out some new cookbooks, at least new to me.  One is the New York times Country Weekend Cookbook, and this gorgeous huge book called Made in Italy Food & Stories by Giorgio Locatelli.  Out of the first one, I made Mark Bittman's Gougeres, which were very good, and tonight I made the Grilled Swordfish with Pesto-Lemon-Caper Sauce, which was delicious.  I have many more flagged, actually too many to make before the book is due.  Has anyone made any recipes from it?  The second book is beautiful, with a lot of interesting text from the author.  I have not tried anything from it yet, as I am recovering from nine days with three out of four kids and families!  It was wonderful, but two dinners, one for 18 and another for 11 was a LOT of cooking!!  Thank goodness the weather was wonderful, and they all were busy with golf, tennis and the beach!  Tonight it's supposed to go down to 30 degrees!!  I don't care as long as it wasn't last week!!!

I love watching Giorgio on TV, a very animated man!

Probably BBC Canada.  It was a couple of years ago he had a series on.

Too big to store, but wonderful to borrow!
