Pondering the Pantry — Research Continues

By Jay Levinson

(UK) Jewish Tribune

Pondering the Pantry is published, but research continues. If you are using olive oil for pickling, an expert suggests picholine olive oil, made from a meaty olive with a small pit and subtle, lightly salty flavour. Picholine is often known as French Olive Oil, given its popularity in France. One culinary suggestion is to add a small amount of picholine olive oil to the preparation of dill pickles, but be careful, realizing that too much will overwhelm the taste of the cucumbers. There is a word of caution. Do not use suri olive oil, a relatively inexpensive product originating in Tyre, Lebanon. It has a strong, harsh aftertaste. Suri is best used to preserve certain foods and certainly not for salad. What is best on salads? Confirmed by a taste test , leccino is an excellent choice. It has a light, smooth and non-dominating taste. If you are making an omelet, use a sparing amount to grease the pan. For salad be more generous with quantity. Bottom line --- know what you buy!

Brilliant reviews

By Kim Wheeler

This adventure for Jonny Plumb finds him in all kinds of trouble when he is firstly accused of giving a footballer a bad case of Floppy Leg. Who then had to be carried into his home on a stretcher..

Our review...... The greatest adventures are the ones we never want to end and what better way to continue Kim Wheeler’s Jonny Plumb series than with Jonny Plumb and The Wonderful Secret. For children of a certain age, adventure is everything, the centre of their world, and Wheeler’s novels belong in that exclusive category of books capable of enthralling children and adults alike. On one level it’s because they fill a void that exists in all of us, on another it’s because Jonny and the ever loyal Legion and Legend are simply sublime characters, inhabiting a world where good means good and bad means something darker, with nothing in between. Combining humour and nonstop adventure is something Wheeler does particularly well, but this time around there’s a certain vulnerability that penetrates the deepest insecurities of our younger years. A gradual awakening to the fact that all things must end, and on this level Jonny’s search for the Elixir of Life takes on symbolic proportions. I
Six wonderful reviews to all my six wonderful Jonny Plumb childrens adventures. A must for adult and child alike where the author takes the readers on a series of magical adventures at home & in space

Un Cuento Sobre la Verdad – a children’s book in Spanish based on the teachings of A Course in Miracles is to be published shortly

By Raveena Nash

“Un Cuento Sobre la Verdad” is one of only a few children’s books that is based on the teachings of the spiritual masterpiece, A Course in Miracles.

Suitable for children in the 7 to 12 age range, “Un Cuento Sobre la Verdad,” takes the form of a dialogue between Joshua, a wise elderly man, and Adam, a nine-year-old who has a lot of curiosity about life. In this book, which is the Spanish translation of “A Tale of Truth,” Raveena simplifies the essence of A Course in Miracles and makes it accessible to children in a light-hearted manner. As the book deals with metaphysical topics, it is a book that a parent should read together with their child.
A Course in Miracles has a wide following in Spanish speaking countries. This is why Total Recall Publications decided to have "A Tale of Truth" translated into Spanish.
