Another Barry Recipe Published

Rita Barry, one of our group's new and talented writers, has had another one of her international cuisine recipes published on the "Where and What In the World?" blog. This blog is published by well-known writer and food expert, Bree Hill, and is aimed at a world-wide audience interested in extraordinary destinations, food and wine, and assorted topics related to travel.

Bree says Rita Barry's Spicy Almonds recipe "has a Moorish feel about it, reminds me of the Andalucia region of Spain. ... The rich color of the soy sauce and the flavor of cayenne pepper bring together a delicious mix of tastes." The entire mouth-watering recipe is available on the "Where and What In the World" blog at

Rita Barry's Dessert Blueberry Cups is also available on the same website as a June 1st blog entry. Try both recipes for your next get-together. You're sure to get rave reviews from all your guests.

Rita is also working on a book of recipes that she expects to publish in the near future.

Congratulations, Rita! And consider yourself a valuable addition to our Sarasota Chapter of the Florida Writers Association! We'll look forward to hearing more about your writing progress at our next meeting.
