An immensely humorous and original tale of Englishmen abroad, inspired from the hit Channel 4 series.
An immensely humorous and original tale of Englishmen abroad, inspired from the hit Channel 4 series. Charting the adventures of affable yet bumbling Nigel, looking for a place to renovate in the deepest Ardeche, this compelling, original and slightly bonkers tale sees him first foray to France with the common-sensical Nippy, and later take up partnership with the truly eccentric Reza, as the pair decide to open up an Indian restaurant. Perfectly capturing the cultural and emotional wrangles of moving abroad, the book is bursting with character; featuring mad estate agents, a love triangle between Nigel, a pretty French girl - and her boyfriend - the trials of persuading people that Indian cuisine is what is needed in the French countryside, a chef that pulls out of the project a week before the grand opening, and of course Reza's recipes, this is a great stand alone read that also enjoys television support with the transmission of the new peak-time series.See all Product description

What did annoy me greatly was Nippi's shameless highjacking of the restaurants idea. The sheer nerve and audacity he had to claim it was all his idea in the first place while it's plain for all to see that it was mainly Nigel's drive and vision (along with Reza's expertise) that made it happen.
I just hope we can expect to find more from Mr Farrell in the near future as in his writing he presents an honest, frank account of what happened, even at the risk of not portraying himself in the best light at times - which only goes to strengthen his achievements in rural France. An excellent read!
