Ann Mah's book
I received a surprise package from Amazon two days ago --- and inside was a gift from my older brother, Ted, as his contribution to this month's Feast Everyday theme of French cuisine:
Mastering the Art of French Eating by Ann Mah,
2013, a Viking book
She is a journalist and food writer --- and says she is a lifelong foodie and Francophile. She is married to a U.S. diplomat and they found themselves fortunate enough to be stationed in Paris but he was called away to Iraq for a year and she was left alone in Paris.
That's when she decided to travel around France and learn more about French food. The book covers 10 dishes from 10 different parts of the country. Examples:
- Paris/Steak Frites
- Alsace/ Choucroute
- Burgundy/Boeuf Bourguignon
Looks like a great read.
