You may know Bill Buford’s writing from his previous book, “Heat,” or from his years as editor of The New Yorker. Now go along for the ride as he recounts his adventures – and misadventures – when he, spontaneously packs up his knives and his family and moves to France to spend time in culinary school and restaurant kitchens.
The subtitle says it all: “Adventures in Lyon as a Chef-in-Training, Father and Sleuth Looking for the Secret of French Cooking.”
Those adventures may make you long for a nice long vacation in France, one of the things we’ve had to forego this year. But the foods and markets written about in the book will certainly have your taste buds longing for a nice French meal. No recipes here, but good descriptions that can inspire you in your own kitchen. Besides being delicious, it’s a good read!
So settle in for a long winter’s spell and enjoy the trip, even if it must be from your favorite chair!
AN IMPORTANT NOTE: When you are buying this book, be sure you purchase “DIRT” by Bill Buford, and not another book by a similar title (two of which were recently released).
