Today on Tea & Tattle podcast, Sophie and I are discussing two of our favourite topics: food and books! More specifically, we're sharing our favourite meals in fiction, from picnics with the Famous Five to crumpets dripping with butter for tea at Manderley.
In this episode, Sophie also gives some great museum and art gallery recommendations from her recent trips to Paris and Athens, and I talk about two bibliomemoirs I've read and enjoyed lately.
