An Embarrassment of Mangoes

An Embarrassment of Mangoes Book CoverI just finished reading a great book, An Embarrassment of Mangoes: A Caribbean Interlude by Anne Vanderhoof. The book was recommended to me by one of our blog readers. This is the true story of the author and her husband who took two years away from work and had the adventure of a lifetime cruising in the Caribbean. The book is filled with excitement and details of their travels and is a very easy read. At the end of each chapter the author includes several recipes that she prepared onboard…most based off a meal someone from the local population prepared for them. I can’t wait to try some of them out!

Looking forward to trading in a life on land for a life aboard a sailboat and cruising wherever the wind takes us.

    Check out her other book – The Spice Necklace. I enjoyed them both very much.

      Great, I will, thanks. You’re the second person to refer that book to me now.
