GIVEAWAY – 3 copies of Love Among The Recipes (PARIS)

21st February 2021

We are delighted to offer you 3 copies of Love Among the Recipes by Carol M Cram. If you love a touch of romance, family relationship, a bit of drama, Paris, and above all French food, then this is a perfect choice for you!


3 copies of Love Among The Recipes

Paris may be for lovers, but cookbook author Genna McGraw is definitely not looking for love. She’s looking for escape and she’s looking for a good runny Brie to pair with a smooth Bordeaux. Where better than Paris?

In Love Among the Recipes, Genna goes to the City of Light to get away from her philandering husband and write a “crossover cookbook/guidebook” that matches Parisian sights such as the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre with recipes for bistro-style French dishes. All goes well…for a while. Genna dabbles in romance with dishy French lawyer Pierre Leblanc and makes friends at her French class with New York transplant Marsha Renfrew.

And then there’s big, blunt Bill Turner from Australia. Does he really eat crocodile steaks for tea?

But when Genna’s family crashes her new life in Paris, a crisis forces her to choose how she wants to live. Will she have the courage to embrace an uncertain future and risk losing everything?

    I always tell people I could never follow a diet wholeheartedly because I’m obsessed with French cheeses and croissants. Of course, I’ve got to be drinking French wine while I’m nibbling away! 😉

    I love a fresh baguette with apple purée and Brie. I was introduced to it by a friend in Paris.
    Second choice would be baguette with cream cheese and jam.

    Oh, I love French food – my daughter lives in France and when we go to visit her, the highlight of our stay is a visit to the market to buy a Poulet Roti and a huge curly endive, then dash back to her house and eat the two together with a freshly prepared vinaigrette dressing. Simple but perfect.

    It used to be a pefect ripe brie but I’ve developed an allergy to it. I’d now have to say a fresh baguette with some fresh butter eaten while sitting in a park in Paris

    When I was in Paris a few years ago, I loved getting a basic croissant daily for breakfast. They served it with butter and jam on the side. I do love a great chocolate croissant too.
