The daughter of a British Foreign Service officer, Moira Hodgson spent her childhood in many a strange and exotic land. She discovered American food in Saigon, ate wild boar in Berlin, and learned how to prepare potatoes from her eccentric Irish grandmother. Today, Hodgson has a well-deserved reputation as a discerning critic whose columns in the New York Observer were devoured by dedicated food lovers for two decades. A delightful memoir of meals from around the world—complete with recipes—It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time reflects Hodgson’s talent for connecting her love of food and travel with the people and places in her life. Whether she’s dining on Moroccan mechoui, a whole lamb baked for a day over coals, or struggling to entertain in a tiny Greenwich Village apartment, her reminiscences are always a treat.

Mild-mannered suburban father Simon Capp took his young family off to the Italian countryside for a change of lifestyle and to test out the theory of the global internet worker. All he needs is electricity and a phone line. What could go wrong? This is the story of the Capp family's Italian odyssey, as they battle the combined forces of Telecom Italia, the nation's stingiest landlord, seven levels of police bureaucracy, a car with a deathwish curse and a town with only one pizzeria in it. It all seemed like such a good idea in the beginning!
This is not a success story. It's a tale of ten years in the coffee industry, of what happens when you take the leap, seize the day, and follow your dreams--then discover you don't have any money, your landlord is an idiot, and the job you moved to another country for may not exist. Annabel's coffee adventures took her from a wet, dreary market in northern England to the Canadian Prairies via a PhD in Central America. Along the way, she learned her barista skills from a World Champion Barista, entertained teenagers with her coffee and culinary experiments, and discovered the joys of entrepreneurship almost by accident. She sorted bad beans from good ones on tiny farms in the highlands of Nicaragua and took home a tropical disease as a souvenir. Her business ventures have combined coffee with books, babies, bicycles, and burlesque, because what else do you do with a PhD. in coffee? She gradually mastered the art of juggling a start-up business, her thesis, and a five-month-old baby at the same time, and negotiated emigration bureaucracy, a few disastrous business relationships, and the brutality of Canadian winters. This is the real story of coffee entrepreneurship, with all the grim, impossible, frustrating, and messy bits left in. Because they all seemed like a good idea at the time.
