    Loved

    I read this a few years back and enjoyed the details of preparing a meal, a process most would find to not be story worthy is brought to life.

    Made me hungry

    Interesting concepts about food. I find it interesting that a man is the head of the food during the holidays. He even cleans up the mess. The only thing I would like to have changed is the fact I do not speak another language and so that made it hard for me when there were no explanations on what was said. I wished I had been there to eat the pig.

    I Also Recommend:

    Beautifully written and unique.

    I'm not going to lie - I picked this book up based purely on my appreciation for the cover art and the fact that I'm obsessed with most things Parisian. Happily, the book is actually a very good read, and John Baxter is an excellent writer whose talent I can only dream of aspiring to. I truly hope he gets the recognition he deserves. The book is an easy and pleasurable read, but it's also brimming with the delicious little nuances of French life that American pseudo-Parisians like myself gobble up like the succulent piglet Baxter cooks up for his family's Christmas dinner. From the author's lighthearted recounting of his Australian boyhood to his mouthwatering descriptions of international cooking, "Immoveable Feast" is a literary buffet for the senses, and a great read no matter the time of year.

    Like a Trip to Paris

    Absolutely loved this book. Recommended by Lynne Rosetto Kasper on her NPR website around the Holidays. She was right on with her recommendation. I have passed my copy on to others. Also bought several additional copies for gift giving at Christmas time.
