'When we found this run-down château of Bosgouet, we'd been dreaming of buying a house in France for some time. We'd become obsessed with the idea of living in the French countryside, of learning a new language and traditions, and of giving our children a new perspective on the world. In 2005, we decided that we'd dreamed about it for long enough and needed to take the plunge . . . The adventure brought us together as a family more strongly than ever, and we found a sense of harmony here is the French countryside that had been hard to maintain at home in Australia.'

After years of painstaking work renovating an old château in Normandy, Jane Webster has found her bearings, running The French table over the summers and juggling family life across two countries year-around. In this, her second book, she offers us a glimpse into life as a local in a French village: keeping house, visiting the markets, restoring the walled kitchen garden, and indulging her passion for 'antiquing' at flea markets and antique fairs. Above all, she shares the simple pleasure of cooking for family and friends – with more than 40 divine regional recipes.

My Favourite Book


This is my favourite book. Not only is it just a great read about an Australian family living In France but you get to understand how the simple things in life can be so very enjoyable ie fresh food, markets, small communities Then to have a book with simple but oh so yummy recipes is such a bonus. I have given this book as a gift and the joy that it brings others too is very satisfying.
