Author(s): John Baxter
For John Baxter - acclaimed film critic and food lover - that moment came when he fell in love with a French woman and impulsively moved to Paris to marry her. As a test of his love, his sceptical in-laws charged him with cooking the next Christmas banquet. His year-long quest takes readers to the farthest corners of France in search of the country's finest recipes and ingredients. Cooking for Claudine is a warm-hearted tale of good food and true love - Parisian-style. How can you resist?
"Such a likeable, readable book, packed with humour and quirky knowledge" - The Independent "John Baxter is so erudite while being so funny. He's much more than a tourist - he's got it all." Diane Johnson, bestselling author of Le Divorce "Uproarious... Baxter's wry humour and fast-paced writing make for a highly entertaining read... a heart-warming tale of love, family and good food." France Magazine
