Review quote

"Like drinking a glass of good Champagne.... Invigorating."--"The New York Times Book Review""Guiliano is back with more personal stories, recipes and a smorgasbord of advice on all things French." --"USA Today""Romantic and evocative. . . . Better than its predecessor. . . . [Guiliano is] preaching a lifestyle, not a fad diet to try and then abandon. . . . And as lifestyles go, this is a pretty fun and healthy one." --"The San Francisco Chronicle""Guiliano's heartfelt joy in proper eating is an inspiration for those looking to enjoy their meals in a healthy way, rather than count their calories." --"Ladies' Home Journal""Elegant common sense."--"O: The Oprah Magazine"
