  1. Hi Johanna, This book “Have Food Will Travel” is awesome.Choices of recipes are super. I already tried “Baba Ghanoush” My 16 year-old daughter mopped the plate. At weekend , for breakfast I made “Savory Tart” which was a complete and delicious breakfast for me, my husband and my daughter. And today I made “Milk Tart” with one extra ingredient, walnut, inside. I have tested and fell in love. Thank you for this neatly prepared cook book which I think I will go over the pages everyday.

    1. Wow Sevil. Thank you for the wonderful feedback. I’m so happy that you enjoy the book. I like that you made the Milk Tart your own by adding walnut. That’s an interesting addition that I may want to try as well at some point. I hope you will carry on enjoying cooking your way through the book. Keep me posted if you want, as to how it goes with the rest. Also, you might like this recipe from my mother’s kitchen that’s not in the book.
