WE ARE SO EXCITED !!!
We just discovered that our book, The Story of Tea A Cultural History and Drinking Guide has been reviewed in the March 2008 issue of Bon Appetit magazine.
You cannot imagine how much it means to us to be so recognized by such an important and beloved voice in the food world. We are overwhelmed, honored and giddy with pleasure. The jacket of our book is shown straight on in all it’s glorious red and black color – an auspicious beginning indeed to the Chinese New Year !
Here is what reviewer Elisa Huang had to say about our book: ” Mary Lou and Robert Heiss, who own the Massachusetts-based specialty store, Cooks Shop Here, cover everything you want to know about one of the world’s finest drinks.”
Then, we discovered that Editor-in-Chief Barbara Fairchild mentioned our book in her monthly Letter from the Editor on page 22. She said: ” Get that kettle going, let the steam fill the room a little, and sit down with a nice, fragrant cuppa. Suggested reading material ? The Story of Tea by Mary Lou and Bob Heiss ( see Culture page 54).”
Wow. Thank you Bon Appetit …….. I think that I could use one of those nice, fragrant cuppas and a sit down right about now !!
