  • Hi, Leanne,
    Your book is great.
    I’m using it in a course I’m teaching a Food-themed semester to college students.
    I’d love to discuss with you how feasible it is to stay within the bounds of the $4.00/day in the city, especially in Lower Manhattan, where we are living.
    Let me know if you are doing a local event at some point this spring or would be willing to come as a guest speaker to my class.
    From a fellow Canadian and Home Cook,

Tell me what you think!
