Corfu dinner party celebrates the tastes, smells and colors of an island the place the cooking is seasonal and the vegetation play adjustments at the subject matter of a year-round spring. An island the place existence follows the ocean; from an icy turquoise in March, via autumn's olive darkness whilst mourga, (the mush of discarded olive skins from the village press) clouds the water to a claret wine, as iciness units in. A memoir within the rhythm of the 5 seasons of Corfu, the tale tells of the home of Rovinia, inbuilt the sixties via Emma Tennant's mom and dad and of Maria, the 'spirit of the house', her wisdom and knowledge. Corfu dinner party entwines recipes and unique images with fond reminiscences in prose. it is a sensuous adventure, like pinching the basil that grows in nice pots on the again door or tasting the faded crimson of the do-it-yourself fragole ice cream.
