FRENCH LESSONS Adventures with Knife, Fork, and Corkscrew

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Simon Jones

Contemporary Culture • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

If “the education of the stomach is never complete,” as bon vivant Peter Mayle contends, his travelogue of French festivals and gastronomic fêtes is a delightful lesson. Simon Jones performs Mayle’s firsthand account with absolute assurance and skill. With a flawless accent, and perfect tone and pace, Jones is our fearless guide to some highly unusual but diverting events. He uses just the right sotto voce asides on wine-tasting spitting manners and delivers mouth-watering descriptions of local cheeses and cuisine minceur. The author could not ask for a better rendition, as Jones teases out the humor and farce while delivering Mayle’s keen observations. Listeners will find themselves planning their own excursion. R.F.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
