Summary
When journalist Ann Mah's husband is given a diplomatic assignment in Paris, Mah, a lifelong foodie and Francophile, begins plotting gastronomic adventures à deux. Then her husband is called away to Iraq on a yearlong post, alone, overturning Mah's vision of a romantic sojourn in the City of Light. So, not unlike another diplomatic wife, Julia Child, Mah must find a life for herself in a new city. Journeying through Paris and the surrounding regions, Mah combats her loneliness by seeking out the true stories behind the country's signature regional dishes, exploring the history and taste of everything from cassoulet to the crispiest of buckwheat crepes. Among encounters with lively chefs, farmers, and restaurateurs, and somewhere between Paris and the south of France, she uncovers a few of life's truths
Summary
When her diplomat husband gets a 3-year assignment in Paris, it's a dream come true or Chinese-American foodie and author Ann Mah. That is until one year into it, when he is abruptly ordered to Iraq -- alone. Mah adapts to life by herself, explores the country, learns its history, meets locals from all over, and enthusiastically checks out signature regional dishes. Tipping her chef's hat to Julia Child (who was also a diplomat's wife in Paris), Mah seasons her delightful memoir with mouth-watering recipes. Francophiles and foodies alike will relish her thoughtful, amusing travelogue. - Description by Dawn Towery
