The Enchanted April and Almond Macaroons

"I devoured The Enchanted April in the garden, where it absolutely demands to be read. It follows four women as they escape a grey English winter to spend a month in a small, crumbling castle on the Mediterranean. It's a beautiful book, one that has been recommended to me many times, but that I am pleased I saved for this trip. The cook who works in the castle, Costanza, prepares many delicious sounding meals for the women: omelettes spilling fresh green peas from their ends, long spaghetti that the women try to cut with a knife, and plenty of almond macaroons, the 'best and biggest [they] had ever come across'."
