Now Mireille shows us how they attune themselves to the rhythms of the year. Here are four seasons' worth of strategies for shopping, cooking, and exercising, as well as some pointers for looking effortlessly chic.

Better as a physical book

Where does French Women for All Seasons rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Probably on the lower end. But, it's because there are recipes in the book. It's difficult to listen to recipes as a 'book'. Additionally, it would be extra difficult to cook from a verbal recipe. However, the book does have an accompanying .pdf that I printed and cooked from. All of the recipes I've tried are delicious!

If you’ve listened to books by Mireille Guiliano before, how does this one compare?

It's the same caliber as her other books. As I stated, it's difficult to listen to recipes. I've enjoyed all of Mireille's books.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

To enjoy the nuances of recipes and cooking. To let go of being so mechanical about it and appreciate the colors, smells and seasons of your ingredients.
