As someone who owns a holiday home in the Lot not far from Les Arques, reading this book in London made me want to jump on the first plane for France. The story is woven around the village restaurant, La Récréation which is a focal point for the restaurant but also details the general life of the village - the council elections, annual fete, foie gras production and much more. If you are visiting the Lot on holiday then this is a must read before you go - it will leave you dripping with anticipation!
I suggest you give this Yankee Francophile and his French chums a big swerve and let make sure no more of us annoying Brits bother to spend another penny in the restaurant La Recreation in Les Arques in southern France. As Sanders claims that half the customers are from the UK that might make toffee-nosed puffed up foodies like this think again.
To much detail and not enough insight, this is the worst book I have ever read.
