I have a confession to make: I’m obsessed with France and all things French.
There. I said it.
In 2017 I have pledged to continue feeding my obsession of all things French by taking this passion in to the kitchen, so when I saw a book titled The Art of French Eating at a discount book store in Melbourne recently, I knew this would be a book I would not only enjoy but also learn from!
The Art of French Eating
I began this book a few days ago and after a few hundred of you screenshot the cover on my Snapchat, I realised this would be a great new read for the WOW Book Club. Sure, I have gone a little nuts on French books over the past year (previously we’ve read Paris Letters, Lunch in Paris and just last month, The Only Street in Paris). But nonetheless I’m back at square one, obsessed with French culture and happenings, especially when it comes to food and dining out!
One instance I remember earlier in the year in Annecy, France, was my partner and I being no less than incompetent when it came to eating out in France. Past the Bonjour Monsieur and niceties I was able to offer our waiter, we really had no idea about how to order or how to behave amidst French dining culture.
So here we are!
I’m hoping this book leads me down the winding path of French table etiquette, social aspects of French dining culture and of course highlights French food by region. If the blurb is anything to go by, I think I’ll be set for a successful visit to France in the New Year!
Lets do this! Do you have any flashbacks from travels to France that lead you to believe this book might help you on future travels to France!?
