After years of thinking about it, Jane Webster finally bought a dilapidated chateau in France. She and her husband had decided they didn't want to die wondering what it would be like to live in the country they both loved so much, so they sold their house in Melbourne, took their four young children out of school and moved the whole family to a tiny village in Normandy.
This is the magical story of their first year in France: with a new language to learn, new friends to make, and a whole new region – from Deauville to Rouen – to discover. It is also the story of Chateau de Bosgouet and how Jane lovingly brought this grand but neglected old house back to life.
At My French Table is an ode to a beautiful country and the French way of life.

It's hard not to be bewitched by Bosgouet's charm, or inspired by Webster's warm and thoughtful depiction of French country life.' - The Food Sage
