I enjoy having an almanac next to my bed to dip into and my new one for next year has arrived!

The author is the daughter of Nicola Beauman, the founder of Persephone Books, and I‘ve spotted several of their books mentioned inside this one.

(This year‘s was the super enjoyable The Food Almanac by Miranda York. 👌)

Tamra I was looking at the Food Almanac and was iffy, but I‘ll put it on my TBR. 😁 2w
LeahBergen @Tamra It‘s pretty British-centric as to the seasonality of foods, etc but it has a nice mix of food essays and recipes. 2w
