She and her husband, Cliff, who owns the Old New York Book Shop, regularly travel to Book Festivals and host book store owners as well as authors on a regular basis in their Atlanta home.

I love top-quality ingredients, proper technique and perfect execution of recipes, but the truth of the matter is that I want people to sit down together at the table and talk. The family table is so important. Just think about the magic that happens around a family table – from paying the bills on it, to doing school projects, to family holidays, planning weddings, and planning funerals. Sitting at it for dinner enriches our lives in the sharing and caring that is expressed during the meal."

Gewurztraminer, Alsace, France

Gewurztraminers display ripe tropical and floral notes that mellow paprika well. Fennel spice in the dish also resonates with the tropical flavors of mango, lychee, and nutmeg in this noble variety from Alsace.
