Guest Post by Ananda: Review of The Parisian Christmas Bake Off by Jenny Oliver
OH FOOD! GLORIOUS FOOD! This book is yummy indeed! I know Christmas is long gone, but I'm one of those that can read Christmassy books all year round.
It's a typical feel-good read and quite a short one, so I'm sure you'll devour it in one sitting. The story is fun too, it's centered around Rachel and her trip to Paris for a cooking competition. It was not her idea to go to Paris, since recently she lost her mother and going away from home is the last thing on her mind. But her friends make her do it, thinking she is a great baker and can show the world her great cooking skills. After hesitating and finding out her boyfriend to whom she was devoted for two years is not actually planning on marrying her, she decides to go to Paris after all. It can't be that bad, right? She's to meet one of the best Chefs and work with lots of new and interesting people, enough to take her mind of grieving and her boyfriend.
And so she takes off on quite an interesting journey where's she's to meet all kinds of people, bake beautiful and delicious food and meet the Devil himself - Chef Henri Salernes.
Guys, reading this book really made me think of food, and nothing but food! If you're on a diet, maybe you should think twice before reading it. Seriously, there's just too much mouth watering dishes, consider yourselves warned, ok?
Overall this really is a fun and easy read, and if you still haven't read it during your Christmas holidays, I think you should check it out. Especially if you're a fan of cooking and Paris.
My rating: 3/5
