THE FRENCH INGREDIENT Making a Life in Paris One Lesson at a Time; A Memoir

by | Read by Barrie Kreinik

Biography & Memoir • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Barrie Kreinik is an excellent guide through this memoir and travelogue by Jane Bertch, founder of La Cuisine Paris. She captures Bertch's adventures in Paris as a banker turned entrepreneur. With warmth and authenticity, Kreinik conveys the humorous self- deprecation underlying each anecdote as Bertch grows to accept a city--and country--she once hated. Kreinik balances the complexities of love, ambition, and cultural adaptation. Through her nuanced delivery and impeccable pacing, Kreinik transports listeners into the heart of the bureaucracy of bustling Paris, where dreams are forged and futures are shaped. Fans of travelogues and memoirs will find the perfect blend here as listeners join in on a transformative journey of resilience, growth, and the pursuit of French culinary skills.
