Artfully-produced tale of magic, whimsy, and comfort food in France.
Summary from Alibris: There is magic and mystery in the French farmhouse known as Pistoulet. Here in Southwestern France, situated between the Field of Echoes and the Hill of Forgotten Dreams, Mademoiselle J. uncovers the ancient recipes which transform the weary guests at Pistoulet. There is redemption in the Tourte of Friendship, Potage of Passion, Celestial Croutons, Tea of Courage, Sweetness Enhancing Honey, and all the other magic potions. In the tradition of Griffin & Sabine, here are fold-out letters, handwritten cards, recipe pockets, and many other enchantments which demonstrate how Pistoulet changes all who can embrace the magic.
This was a cute little book that was a fast read. I really got a kick out of the "recipe" cards in pockets and the occassional vellum pages. It made for a cute and interesting story!
