Freedom Fries and Cafe Crème-Jocelyne Rapinac

Freedom Fries and Cafe Crème Jocelyne Rapinac Gallic Books, Feb 11 2014, $15.95 ISBN: 9781908313003 This is an enticing refreshing anthology (with many recipes included) in which attractive and appetizing food connects the twelve months of tales as the way to a person’s heart is with tasty healthy dining. Good health and life coach Armand and Liana meet at a New Year’s Eve party, but when she asks him out in January she has doubts as he informs her that his young daughter lives with him (any tale that mentions superbe acteur Monsieur Hulot is a winner). Every Valentine’s Day, Jessica and Anne-Sophie meet at the Zenith bar, but this year Mary-Whitney crashes their dining with demands they help in keeping her spouse away from the latter. In July, Brune and Pierre discuss “Breakfast for two.” As Christmas nears, Dominic tells his shrink he plans to sue Forty State Burger for making him obese; while the psychologist ponders about his patient’s blaming others for his unhealthy eating habits and also muses how patient Carla will deal with Armand and his daughter moving to Brooklyn to live with Liana. Bon appetite! Harriet Klausner
