I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Diane and Mark's wonderful adventures in France, and loved their insider's view of the country's quirks and customs. I'm a self-proclaimed French food freak and can't wait to cook some of their recipes (although I may not be ambitious enough to try the bouillabaisse, even if it is only 37 easy steps).
Having recently returned from my own culinary trip to Paris, this book brought back a lot of great memories for me, especially reading about their experiences at some of the great cooking schools and gourmet food shops in Paris.
If you've never been to Paris or Provence, you'll be planning your first trip long before you reach the final chapter. Or, if you're like me and you've already been, you'll find yourself wanting to catch the first flight back.
