If you have a passion for everything French, this book is your guide to Finding France right here in Australia.
NEW & UPDATED
By Alison Patience and Sally Matheson
It’s a love affair! Australians love France and the first edition of Finding France in Australia immediately found many new friends. The book was a list of the authors’ favourite “French finds” and they compiled this second edition with the help of “lovers of France” from all around Australia who contributed their own personal “French finds”:
- French restaurants and cafés around Australia
- French food stores and pâtisseries
- French wine in Australia Beautiful
- French linens, furniture and gifts
- Pour les enfants – French label children’s clothes and toys
- Language classes and schools/French cuisine classes.
The French have a certain style that is uniquely theirs. Happily for us all, many French people, and some Australians, have captured and distilled it so that when you visit some of the places listed in this book you’ll discover a stylishness, a flair and dash combined with a sense of beauty and quality you don’t find everywhere – a “Frenchness” if you like.
The first edition of Finding France in Australia was compiled by two friends with a love of everything French, who live in Australia yet year for French food, décor and style. They crammed the book with the places they’d found, added little stories about France and the French, then sent it into the world to see if it touched a chord with anyone else. To their absolute joy, the book found many friends, both Australian and French, who kindly said it was not only useful but enjoyable. And readers from all over Australia also sent names of new “finds”.
This new updated edition includes those new places and we’ve continued sharing our passion for French culture and history with new stories about the widows of Champagne, the Châteaux of the Loire, French perfume, French cheese and French wine in Australia.
