New audiobooks!

We are thrilled to launch Cooking Out Loud with beloved food writer Elizabeth David's South Wind Through the Kitchen. Elizabeth David traveled through Europe and the Mediterranean before, during and after WWII, cooking, eating and writing about the delicious local dishes, fresh ingredients and family cafes she discovered. Her books influenced an entire generation of cooks.

I was introduced to Elizabeth David many years ago by an English-Ukranian family I worked for in Boston. I instantly fell in love. Her books are so beautifully written that I read them like novels while commuting on the subway. It is a dream come true to bring one of my favorite writers to audio.

We are very excited to bring you Wild Fibers Magazine: Five Years of Favorites! Travel with Wild Fibers Magazine editor Linda Cortright around the world as she searches out the exotic breeds of fiber animals she loves. This is superb travel writing for the fiber enthusiast! Linda writes, reads, and reflects, with warmth and wit.

How exciting! I love Mediterranean food and our trip to Greece was memorable for the food alone.

Good food and exotic fibers ~ what great topics you cover!

Thank you! Elizabeth David tells a funny story on this audiobook of being asked by the locals on a small Greek island to make them a Christmas plum pudding. This was in the 1940's and she had to stone the raisins by hand.

I've always wanted to go to Greece, everyone seems to love it.
