3.0 out of 5 stars Immoveable Feast: A Paris Christmas, 6 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Immoveable Feast: A Paris Christmas (P.S.) (Paperback)
In this book, Christmas is simply a vehicle to discuss French food culture, and the family occasions brought together by a meal. Immoveable Feast: A Paris Christmas is the story of an Australian man, married to a French woman, trying to impress his in-laws by putting together a spectacular Christmas dinner. Utilising traditional French cuisine, as well as some more modern twists, he travels to a few different places in France to pick up the right ingredients, with some nice anecdotes about the French approach to food and selling it. Then, of course, we witness the Christmas dinner in all its glory, everybody eating and drinking their fill. and in-laws are suitably impressed.

It's a fun book. Not particularly long, or discussing much about French culinary history, it's a light read with some nice stories. Well written, you enjoy the dinner they have as if you were a part of it, and you remember back to your own Christmases with family and friends, as well as the effort made over the meal itself. You get a nice insight into French culture with Christmas, and in general. The book doesn't contain much gastronomic detail about cooking the meal, but for what it is, it's an enjoyable read.
