Author/narrator Elizabeth Bard presents a story that is as light and delicious as a soufflé. In this second book about her married life in France, the former New Yorker adapts to French values, customs, and, most importantly, cooking. She and her French husband leave Paris and buy a historic house in Provence. In a lively, humorous manner Bard recounts how she, a sophisticated journalist, becomes a rural French housewife and mother. Her tone is both self-satisfied and self-deprecating. This food memoir/love story ends with the couple setting up an artisanal ice cream company. Listeners can go online for specific recipes, but the cooking descriptions are so sensual that they may never need to actually enter the kitchen.
