"Outstanding Tour de France Yummy
"Authors Cathy Connally and Charley Best assembled a remarkable tour of culinary and societal insights throughout France. This book is vastly different from other recipe cookbooks. The book unfolds more like a storybook that takes you on a whirlwind tour of the country, offering delicious historical tidbits along the way. The original photographs enrich this story like an artfully added dab of perfectly whipped crème. The ingredients used are healthy and natural to excite the palate yet satiate those who sample the tastes.
The history related by the author growing up in this culture-rich environment made me fall in love with this book with every page turn. The example below makes this story become a passionate experience.
When I first invited a friend over and wanted her to wait for me, I ran to ask my father how to say the words in French. When I returned and said, “S’il-te-plaît, attends ici,” she did exactly as I asked. I giggled and was so pleased. Since then, I’ve become very good at asking people to do things!
There was also a little boy in my kindergarten class who teased me unmercifully. His name was Patrick-Michel, but I called him Patrick Méchant (Wicked). Giving him the gift of my repartee in French was quite empowering.
I also fell in love with the French cheeses and bread I saw in the local shops. Walking with my mother, Mary, and looking up at ancient buildings and the cathedral was a far cry from being a little girl in Connecticut. Let’s go on a walk, and I’ll show you.
I enjoyed every page and every recipe of this book and successfully did two of the recipes. I recommend it to those with passions for cooking, life, history, and family. Flavour with Benefits, France is a fantastic book with valuable recipes. I bought it as an ebook, but the book is on my list for Christmas. You must check out the best healthy alternatives."
This book has it all, gorgeous photos of France and healthy food
"As a traveler, my favorite part of the book was the beautiful photos of France. They made me long to experience the places on their route for myself. As a reader, my favorite part was the really interesting stories about people. I'm jealous of one of the authors who was able to live in France for some time as a child. What an incredible experience, and what an awesome way to learn French! I also enjoyed the stories of the women who built the champagne industry even though I've never developed a taste for wine. And I haven't even gotten to the food yet. Definitely a book for foodies, as well."
