I just received my copy of Entertaining in the French Style by Eileen W. Johnson. It is a charming book with historical tid-bits and anecdotal stories interlaced with beautiful photos offering a glimpse into the lives of the inhabitants of each region she visits from the Provencal countryside to the Luberon mountains to the heart of Paris.
A recipe and wine pairing is given from each of the eight locales along the way and the imagery –by photographer Brie Williams– has set my mouth to watering.
—I’m off to see what I can round up for a late supper!
