Mastering the Art of French Eating: Lessons in Food and Love from a Year in Paris - Ann Mah

This book was so charming!  And delish.  I recommend reading this book with some snacks nearby, although nothing you eat will be as tasty as the dishes that Mah describes.

 

 

This is the memoir of an American diplomat's wife, who ends up in Paris by herself for a year.  And to make the best of a not-so-perfect situation, she takes a cultural and culinary tour of France, describing traditional French dishes.  She weaves in her own personal stories, French history, and variations of the dishes she encounters.  Each chapter is dedicated to a specific dish and region of France, and ends with a recipe for the dish as well.  Not sure that I'll be able to duplicate any of these, but some of them seemed straight forward enough to give a shot.
