Product Description

When Jane Webster sells her house in Melbourne, Australia, and takes her four children out of school to move to a grand but neglected chateau in Normandy, she isn’t sure how they’ll adapt to their new French lives. But, soon enough, the family is immersed in the tiny village of Bosgouet, embracing the unhurried pace and seasonal rhythms of rural France. There is a new language to learn, new friends to make, and a whole region — from Paris to Rouen and Deauville — to discover. Restoring the chateau to its former glory also gives Jane the opportunity to fulfill her lifelong dream of establishing a cookery school. With an abundance of fresh produce at hand and the advice of local traiteurs and chefs, Jane brings the flavors of Normandy to life at her table.
