I won this book as a white-paper-wrapped door prize at a going-away party for my friend Katharine Miller and her boyfriend Kris. I also now own dozens of vinyl records that belonged to Kris, which I purchased from him in the move.

From the frog's legs festival to the French Riviera, Englishman Peter Mayle delighted and educated me every step of the way. If part of being French means understanding French food, I felt decidedly more French after reading this book. I'm also glad Peter pointed out his undying love for Duck Confit - I tried it in Paris and was so happy for having read this book.

Required reading if you're traveling to France - this book could even help you make travel plans.
