Teaser Tuesdays: Tantalizing Tastes

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading and, as she states, "Anyone can play along! Just do the following":

Grab your current read.

Dying for Chocolate -- A Culinary Mystery by Diane Mott Davidson. Yeah, it's drivel about a caterer who solves crimes ... but it's food-related drivel at a time when my brain isn't up for much more of an intellectual challenge at the end of long work days.

Open to a random page.

Page 178.

Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)

"The juicy steaks were redolent of a garlic-Burgundy marinade, the flaky baked potatoes oozed melted butter, and every leaf of the green salad was unabashedly coated with thick guacamole dressing."

"Therefore, alongside our strawberry pie we had Schulz's famous chocolate-mint cheesecake."

Sigh ....

Sounds like fun. I don't think my book, The Abolition of Britain, would fit though. :-)

Thought I would join the fun. Here's my teaser from Beneath The Starry Sky. "In that very instant, ten miles away, in the attic of an old Victorian house, the faintest scent of lilac sprung to life in the form of an ethereal mist. It began swirling through the dormant stuffy air and seemed to take on a purpose as it slowly drifted down the stairs. Through each room it traveled, as though looking for something or someone. Until, at last, it reached a woodworking shop that was housed in the basement. Here it deliberately lingered and moved slowly among the tools."

You had me at...:every leaf of the green salad was unabashedly coated with thick guacamole dressing." Now that's my kind of salad and my kind of reading. I like the lite fluffy stuff. Smile

I am always in trouble with this type of game... I am currently reading some story involving Thomas the Tank Engine, or 5 naughty monkeys.

Maybe I need to read more about food. Would a cookbook work?
