Come to the Table: A Passion for Eating and French Living

£5.99

Product description

Louise Luiggi's Come to the Table is a highly original memoir of the author's journey towards a passion for food - which ultimately led to her running her own restaurant. Focusing on the French influence that changed her eating patterns - a transformation spiced with the trials and tribulations of taking on a 'new' Corsican family - Louise Luiggi explores her travels from her innocent au pair days in Paris, to liberated student living, an impulsive marriage in Toulouse to setting up her own restaurant, French Living. She writes enchantingly about the food and lifestyle discoveries that she made along the way, and demonstrates how easy it can be to live outside France, yet reap the benefits of simple but delicious French cuisine. Although this book contains a few recipes it is not a cookbook. The author's unique vision and experience casts a whole new perspective on the importance of food in our lives, how it can affect relationships, nurture creativity and confidence - and make your mouth water. Published 2004. 1st edition. Dust jacket in vgc.
