I came across 'Lunch in Paris' in WH Smith at the airport as I was searching for a good holiday read (with only ten minutes to boarding!) but I instantly knew this was just my kind of book.
'Lunch in Paris' (A love story with recipes) is a story about a young American woman who falls in love with a Frenchman called Gwendal, Paris and French food. Throughout the book there are mouth-watering recipes for the dishes she learns to create...pork spare ribs glazed in honey and rosemary, summer ratatouille, molten chocolate cakes.......
I like the way the recipes are part of the story. After reading about her mother-in-law's delicious poached cod, served at the family lunch, it was good to see the recipe just a few pages later.
