Loved it, surprisingly. A very quick read concerning the (Australian) author?s preparations of the Christmas feast for his (French) in-law?s family. The author?s got a huge ego?he name drops all the time, presumes all readers have a mental map of Paris, mentions cooking preparations as if everyone?s a chef, and comments on how certain he is that the food will be perfectly cooked based on one glance or prod or touch. In some places, he disappoints by not letting the reader know how things actually turned out. Or perhaps what really happened doesn?t matter: it?s either the anticipation or the memory of the anticipation that matters to him. And I wasn?t too keen on all the mentionings of casual sex and recreational drug use (as if such would apply to all the readers, you know, wink, wink). But it was still a fun read.
