The first and new series showcasing good tasting cuisine and its and bouchons (aka restaurants). In Lyons, France you will find many bouchons dating back to the World War years. Laure Grenadier, a food journalist along with her photographer, Paco Alvarez are in Lyons to do an article on the bouchons and special food dishes. We travel with as they sample the dishes, Laure writes the text and Paco takes photos of the dishes. Often the recipes are included in body of the book. Shortly, after they arrive one of the chefs is brutally murder. This is followed by a second victim. Laure aids the police in finding the solution to the cases. I did have a problem with following the story as I am not familiar with the French words. This book was written in French and has been translated into English. The mystery is no much as the food and restaurants are more important. I recommend this book for those wishing to know more about the Cuisine of France.

Disclosure: Many thanks to LeFrench for my copy to review. The opinions expressed are my own.
