More than anything Hot Nights Cool Days is about the enjoyment of food Ã�Â¢Ã�Â�Ã�Â� casual fare at the waterÃ�Â¢Ã�Â�Ã�Â�s edge, letting a long lunch roll on until late in the afternoon, experiencing the warm cosiness of dining beside the fire Ã�Â¢Ã�Â�Ã�Â� these kinds of delicious occasions are matched with wonderful food in seven all-encompassing chapters:
But itÃ�Â¢Ã�Â�Ã�Â�s not all a hedonistic rush of rich, luscious food.
