Mireille Guiliano, author of French Women Don't Get Fat: The Secret of Eating for Pleasure, has a new cookbook out, and she's coming to Seattle today (Monday, May 10) to spread the good word on healthy eating. (A French person doesn't say, "I'm full." She says, "I am no longer hungry." End of story.)
The new book, The French Women Don't Get Fat Cookbook, has 150 simple recipes in addition to stories from Mme. Guiliano's childhood in France, her adult life in New York (where she ran the import arm of Veuve Clicquot champagne), Paris, and Provence, and her extensive travels for business and pleasure.
Among the words of wisdom on Guiliano's website is Colette's maxim: "Un homme qui n’aime pas le fromage ne peut être bien au lit," or "A man who does not like cheese cannot be good in bed."
Guiliano will appear at noon today (Monday, May 10) for a demo and book signing at Barnes & Noble, 2675 N.E. University Village St., and at 7 p.m. for a reading at Third Place Books, 17171 Bothell Way N.E., Lake Forest Park.
