Book Notes

Bite Notes

  • Pair Blacktop Wasteland with the Richmond, VA, staple, the Sailor Sandwich
  • Enjoy Seven Days in June with the best snickerdoodle cookie recipe.
  • Find recipes from Antigua and Barbuda in the library database AtoZ World Food. Dacuna, a sweet potato dumpling, and Seafood Salad sound particularly delicious, though you could also pair Mr. Loverman with a taste of rum.
