Bastille Day, Book and Boeuf Borguignon!
Ooh la la. Today is Bastille Day, or the French National Day. If you're looking for a quick summer read that will evoke the city of light, why not try French Lessons, by Ellen Sussman? Ms. Sussman lived in Paris for five years, and her novel about three tutors and their American students in a French language immersion program will put you in the mood for all things French. For a little French Chef nostalgia, enjoy the video of Julia Child's famous Boeuf Bourguignon recipe below:
