Reviews

""Mastering the Art of French Eating" makes you want to be in Paris as [Mah] describes the delight of crusty baguettes spread with butter and jam, surprise glimpses of Notre Dame caught from the bus, nursing a glass of red wine in a cafe that has mirrored columns and a zinc bar. . . . the book has appealing honesty and vulnerability, overlaid as it is with the pain of her husband's absence. It will also make you very hungry. "Wall Street Journal" Mah admirably fits her research into easily digested bites, the reader s enthusiasm mirroring her own. "The New York Times Book Review" "A well-written entree into French dining." The Daily Beast "Consistently passionate and emotionally resonant, Mah s prose brims with true love . . . A bighearted, multisensory tour of France." "Kirkus" "The author s investigations into the importance of each dish to the people she meets are beautifully woven together with her reflections on culture, identity, love, and marriage, resulting in an enjoyable and thoughtful read that sparkles with humor. . . . This honest, funny, and eloquent memoir is sure to delight lovers of France, food, or travel." "Library Journal" "The real joy of this book . . . is in Mah s mouthwatering, bite-by-bite descriptions of the plates set before her in Parisian cafes, country homes, and hole-in-the-wall foodie hideaways. Francophiles will delight in the smattering of French words and phrases sprinkled throughout every page, and serious cooks may endeavor to follow the lengthy recipes for a signature regional dish included at the end of each chapter." "Booklist" "Whether you re French or Francophile, a long-time connoisseur of French food or someone who s just figuring out the difference between frites and frangipane, feasting through France with Ann Mah is a delicious adventure. Ann s writing is lovely, her curiosity boundless and her good taste assured. Spending time with her in "Mastering the Art of French Eating" is a treat." Dorie Greenspan, author of "Around My French Table" and owner of Beurre & Sel Cookies "Ann Mah dishes up a welcoming concoction, a good dose of French history, a personal, vibrant, enthusiastic picture of life in a country she adores, without apology. I am hungry already!" Patricia Wells, author of "The Food Lover's Guide to Paris "and "Simply Truffles" "Excellent ingredients, carefully prepared and very elegantly served. A really tasty book." Peter Mayle, author of "The Marseille Caper "and "A Year in Provence" Ann Mah writes inspiringly about basic French dishes we thought we knew all about. She joins Elizabeth David in being a joy and an instruction to read." Diane Johnson, author of "Le Divorce" "A tour de force through French cuisine, Ann Mah crisscrossed France, learning about all my favorite foods from buckwheat galettes to the secrets of authentic cassoulet. Her personal culinary tale will have you packing your bags. But if you can t make it to France, Ann offers delicious recipes, culled from experts!" David Lebovitz, author of "The Sweet Life in Paris" Ann Mah goes straight to the essential in this lively, mouth-watering book as she explores the foundations of French cuisine. She even goes where all before her have failed to tread the wild country of andouillette to tempt with her stories and her approachable recipes. Bravo! Susan Herrmann Loomis, author of "On Rue Tatin" "Like a bowl of homemade cassoulet, this book is warm to the touch. Ann Mah writes about her international experiences and origins with great sensitivity. She gives us a peek into French kitchens foodies will envy, and no Francophile could resist." Elizabeth Bard, author of "Lunch in Paris" From the peaks of the French Alps to Brittany s buckwheat fields, Lyon s bouchons to Burgundy s wineries, Ann takes us all over France in pursuit of its culinary traditions. But at the heart of her story is Paris and all the love, wistfulness and deliciousness found there.
