A series of interesting pieces

(3 stars)

A series of interesting recordings, about food and drink in this particular collection, each less than fifteen minutes long. Great for falling asleep to, I find. Not meaning to be offensive: I just like falling asleep to audio books and with this collection you know you've not missed more than 15 minutes of story. Also good for coffee breaks, of course.
