Cooking for Claudine: How I Cooked My Way into the Heart of a Formidable French Family by John Baxter

For John Baxter - acclaimed film critic and food lover - that moment came when he fell in love with a French woman and impulsively moved to Paris to marry her. As a test of his love, his sceptical in-laws charged him with cooking the next Christmas banquet. His year-long quest takes readers to the farthest corners of France in search of the country's finest recipes and ingredients. Cooking for Claudine is a warm-hearted tale of good food and true love - Parisian-style. How can you resist?

Diane Johnson, bestselling author of Le Divorce "Uproarious... Baxter's wry humour and fast-paced writing make for a highly entertaining read... a heart-warming tale of love, family and good food."
