blogs for Avery Aames: A Cheese Shop Mystery series
I love making plans. I love new ideas, new concepts, new inspiration.
And to that end, I’m pleased to announce that my good friend, Jenna Hart, is opening The Cookbook Nook in Crystal Cove, California, a beautiful seaside town with a fabulous Mediterranean climate. I can’t wait to visit. The shop is situated in Fisherman’s Village, a quaint selection of shops and dining opportunities. The Cookbook Nook will offer all sorts of cookbooks--old, new, and rare--as well as culinary mysteries and general fiction about food. Did any of you ever read CHOCOLAT? Heavenly. In addition, Jenna will sell knickknacks and kitchen items, and she’ll offer cooking classes and more. I’ve seen some of the fun decorative things she has for sale. Miniature measuring cups, beautifully tooled cookbook holders, aprons, jigsaw puzzles, and there will be a whole children’s section!
Sadly, she lost her husband two years ago. I think the move to Crystal Cove will be good for her. Give her a fresh start.
Now, just so you know, the shop won’t be ready until next year 2013, mid-summer, so I’ll have to wait a bit to visit--so will you, I guess--but I’m so excited for her.
Care to share? I'm always excited for change, aren't you?
