Between two fires : intimate writings on life, love, food & flavor by Laura Esquivel( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the author of Like Water for Chocolate comes a richly layered collection of stories, essays, and recipes that delves into affairs of the heart, the spirit, and, of course, the stomach. In this book of musings and memories, novelist Laura Esquivel reflects on the powerful relationships that shape us and the central role of food in them all. With imagination, intimacy, and wry humor, she offers up a banquet of vivid writings and mouthwatering recipes. Between these pages you'll discover warm kitchens; rich, fragrant moles; and loved ones sharing the essential joy of cooking. The women who taught Esquivel to cook approached food with a spiritual reverence--they were, in essence, priestesses and alchemists. Under their guidance, Esquivel learned that there is magic in food and in those who prepare it

He doesn’t believe it, so he stows away in a shipment being returned to the warehouse to search for the bunny himself. Nico quickly gets stranded on the island of Omnia, a fantastical place that does much more than sell everyday items. It is a hub for a business with intergalactic reach, and while stray visitors to Omnia are welcomed warmly, they are not permitted to leave, ever. The adventure of a lifetime awaits Nico as he searches for the beloved toy and tries to find a way to return home."--Amazon.com
