Review: Embarrassment of Mangoes



Embarrassment of Mangoes by Ann Vanderhoof

What's the perfect way to offset the sudden cold descending on Indiana? Read this book!

What a wonderful travel memoir...Ann and her husband Steve took two years out of "real life" to sail from Toronto to the Carribean, with various stops along the way. I loved reading about their sailing adventures, their various stops, and all the recipes Ann tried along the way.

I was particularly interested in the passages about Trinidad, since my grandparents lived there for years and years - also, for the recipe for Callaloo, my mother's specialty. ;-)

I'm going to absolutely recommend this book to my sister and bro-in-law...they are big boaters and Carribean-lovers, and I'm going to recommend this to my parents, as a trip down memory lane.

Wonderful!
