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!
Well packaged & fast delivery
Very engaging story - went to the restaurant and re-lived the book. Excellent!
Recommended reading for anyone heading that way.
If you love France and french food this book is for you. You get to live for a year with the restaurant proprieters and the villagers, learning all the rituals of the daily grind. Hard work it is, too. Also you learn how to get good service in restaurants!
The author's description of the region, all the history, all the detail about rural life left me longing to go there and taste it for myself.
Worth a second read.
Progress was slow and turgid; I didn't make it to the end.
