“While you're waiting for your bread or cake to rise, transport yourself to Beaujolais country in France and read about the latest exploits of French winemaker detective Benjamin Cooker.
Anne Trager, founder of the Le French Book publishing house, translated this book from the mystery series, which entertains and informs us about different French wine regions and local foods. Learn about the region's wines made from Gamay grapes, like Beaujolais Nouveau, Village and Cru, served up with "sexy, adulterous women, smarmy wine merchants and tight-lipped wine growers." These wine detective stories also have been a hit TV series in France.
The authors are generous with philosophical quotes throughout the book. I particularly enjoyed the included wisdom of Andre Maurois: 'Growing old is no more than a bad habit, which a busy person has no time to form.'
This book is a short page turner, making it a perfect stocking stuffer for food and wine lovers.” —El Paso Times
