Continuing on my French memoir kick (it’ll last as long as the books do!), I read this follow-up to Lunch in Paris.
It was written I the same fun way that LIP was, complete with delicious-sounding recipes (I love how she tells a wonderful story surrounding food then shares the recipe), but this book mostly takes place after they move to a tiny village in provence and their quest to adjust and fit into village life.
One day, Elizabeth and Gwendyl get the idea to become business owners… of an ice cream shop! They spend months and month testing recipes and researching equipment. They open with great success and just announced the opening of another location in Paris!
Elizabeth also shares with us her struggle connecting with motherhood and with her son, Alexandre. It is a heart-breaking story but one that ends well.
