“The Food Network’s loss is every reader’s gain: Amy Finley is a smart, funny writer and a really good traveling companion. Packed into the car with Amy, her husband and two kids, you’ll see and taste France in a completely original way. Whether you know the country well or are hoping to discover it, savoring its fare with Amy is a treat.”
--Dorie Greenspan, author of Around My French Table
“What comes first—food or family? How to Eat a Small Country is a delicious story by Amy Finley about balancing them both, and ultimately finding happiness in a country where family life still revolves around the dining table.”
--David Lebovitz, author of The Sweet Life in Paris
“An unexpected and delightful memoir. How Amy Finley slipped under the wire of Food Network and into our homes is an enduring mystery, and her tale of moving to rural France to preserve her marriage and family is a great read filled with joyous bites.”
“How to Eat a Small Country shares a few key traits with Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love, in particular an infectiously likeable narrator and mouthwatering descriptions of European food. But Finley’s memoir is less precious, more honest, and ultimately more rewarding.”
