This is definitely a case of the right book at the right time...This Thanksgiving weekend I was looking for something warm, light, cozy to get me into the holiday spirit. John Baxter is an Australian writer living in Paris with his French wife. He is also the chef for the family Christmas dinner. Baxter takes us through his menu planning, trips to find the best oysters, cheese, etc. Along the way he tells stories about his first dinner with the family, being a fish-out-of-water in France, and French customs and quirks mostly centering around food. This is very light, easy reading fare but perfect to get you into the holiday spirit of food and family.
