Summer Reading: French Women for All Seasons

Remember back in 2005 when everyone was reading French Women Don't Get Fat, Mireille Guiliano's diet lifestyle book about eating the French way in order to lose weight and fully enjoy life to its fullest? Being a huge fan of all things European, and a promoter of everything in moderation, I enjoyed reading it tremendously. It's the only food book that Fab has ever laid a finger on, making me think it's fashionable enough to flip through her sequel French Women for All Seasons: A Year of Secrets, Recipes, and Pleasure. This book sits in my to-read stack and I can't wait to return to Guiliano's chic, but know-it-all, mom who whole heartily promotes drinking Champagne as often as possible! The topics of eating locally and cooking with produce that's in season is all the rage right now, and I'm curious to see her French view on the subjects. Has anyone read her second book? Is it worth bumping to the top of my must-read list?

While the first book can't be beat, the second is still worthy. Plus, who doesn't want more tidbits about the culture and those lovely French diet/cooking tricks. I have already lost 20 pounds thanks to Mireille!

Ok, I passed over the first one so many times and now I'm totally going out to buy it!

I absolutely adored the first book! Never really did anything with using her recipes or cleansing tips to change my lifestyle (even though I wanted to) but the overall motto of not fearing food and moderation I have taken into account. And the drinking lots of water!!! It makes me pee every hour but HEY! I would definitely read her second book.

This is a good follow up book and gives you more tips and recipes but not as good as the first.

nice. i actually just made the 'orecchiette with tuna and zucchini' recipe from this book last night! i didn't love the entire book, however. it seemed to me to be a rushed follow-up to her original 'french women don't get fat.' and she spends a lot of time explaining herself and almost apologizing for some of the content in the the original.
