from the back cover; When Tom Higgins, a translator, and his wife, Sue, a physician, decided to set up an English restaurant in Lyon, France (the country's capital of fine dining), they had no idea what they were getting into. In this delightful memoir of their first eight years in business, Higgins recounts all- from the amused disbelief of their neighbors who regard English Food as a joke, to the frustrating impenatrability of the French licensinf bereaucracy; from the positive delight in choosing wines and creating menus, to ultimately, the extraordinary feeling of running a good restaurant that pleases the most fussy diners in the world. Includes 12 English recipes.
