Summary

You asked for it…so here it is...


Since the launch of Bella…A French Life in 2013, reviewers have loved the novel for the way it immerses the reader into rural France; helped in no small way by the descriptions of French cooking that Bella creates for the men in her life or while dining in restaurants.

The cooking is seamlessly woven into the text such that while evoking the sights, smells and tastes of Normandy, it isn’t easy for the reader to replicate these themselves.

So by popular demand, here is Bella... A French Life - The Cookbook.

It details the recipes from the novel with complete ingredients lists, methods, how to serve and what wine to drink with. All this set against a narrative of events in the novel that inspired them.
