Do you love cook books??
I do!
And cook books that tell a good story…
Tanya Bartolini is the author of the new book “Blending the Cultures”.


This book is more than a cook book.
It’s a story about a family.
A family and their passion for food and Tanya’s passion for sharing the recipes with the reader.
With gorgeous (mouth drooling) photos and a story to go with each recipe the reader will be hooked.
It’s a book that inspires.
Inspires you to cook, to share and to spend time with others.
It is a delight to read and I can’t wait to cook something from it.
As a reader of my blog I have some good news…
Thanks to the lovely people at WordStorm
