food, wonderful food points to
This is a quick, entertaining read. I recommend it.
What a nice convergence of food, book, and happiness.
Scroll down and look on the right side for a list of recipes (keep scrolling past the junk).

Gesine talks about her one-way (mirrored on the store side) window through which it was originally planned to have a view from the kitchen, to the front. Didn't work out as expected because the viewer from the back room has to be "in the dark". Like detectives looking into a brightly lit interrogation room, viewing from the dark side. But "in the dark" really means "lacking information" / "not knowing what is going on". I guess you have to read the book, I didn't understand it.
