Sex at the 101 cave creek
Who doesn't love the way a good book can take you to places you've never been, or even better, introduce you to people from times you'd never know otherwise.
Anyhow, it is a habit that stuck, and I'm always on the lookout for the next page-turner.
Right now I'm reading Richard Price's Lush Life, Camus' The Plague, and David's The Sweet Life in Paris. But seriously, 178 pages into The Plague, one welcomes a solid dose of Lebovitz-style humor. When a friend asked me to bring dessert to dinner the other night, I cheated and peeked ahead at the recipes in the back of David's book, and discovered this Breton Buckwheat Cake with Fleur de Sel.
It's a simple, deliciously dense, buckwheat flour cake that can be baked off in a tart or cake pan. You can serve it with any sort of seasonal fruit compote.
The cavernous ceilings, walls of rock and a natural waterfall in the center of the main room let you feel close to nature without being uncomfortable, while guaranteeing stunning acoustics for movies on TV.
