A bit disjointed since the author keeps shifting around in his chapters between preparing for a specific Christmas dinner and tangents that he follows in chapters thrown in the middle as the ideas seem to come to him. However, it is all very interesting. The divorced author (Aussie by way of California) married a second time into a French family. It's never clear why he became the designated chef for the family's Christmas dinner (maybe I missed that part), but the discussion of preparing the menu and buying the ingredients for one such meal leads him off into many pathways involving French culture.
