Searching for Family and Friends at the French Table






An intimate peek inside French homes and lives, a collection of traditional French recipes ( cuisine pauvre or "peasant foods"), and a compendium of culinary cultural traditions--sprinkled with historical anecdotes and spiced with humor and deliciously candid memories--this culinary food and travel memoir reveals French families at their best and at their own dinner tables.


A retired family therapist, Carole Bumpus began writing about food and travel when she stumbled upon the amazing stories of women and war in France. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area but has traveled extensively through France and Italy, where she has interviewed more than seventy-five families to date for her food and travel blogs. Her historical novel A Cup of Redemption was published October 2014, and her unique companion cookbook, Recipes for Redemption: A Companion Cookbook to A Cup of Redemption, was released August 2015. She has also had three short stories published in the Fault Zone anthologies: Words from the Edge, Stepping up to the Edge, and Over the Edge.
