Meghan H. (meghanhawley) reviewed French Women for All Seasons: A Year of Secrets, Recipes, and Pleasure on
I wasn't too sure if I would like this book, not having read the original French Women book but it was recommended by a friend so I gave it a whirl. I really liked it! It's an easy read but still has lots of useful info complete with plenty of recipes (but not so many that it just becomes a cookbook). Nice change of pace; very informal style is relaxing and enjoyable to read.
