In 2005 Jane Webster sold her house in Melbourne and took her four children out of school and moved to a rather run-down chateau in France. She had been running her business The French Table, which specialises in foodie tours around Paris, for nearly 10 years, but she was looking for a more permanent base to set up a cookery school. Finally she and her family came across a chateau in Normandy which was to become home. With a photographer following Jane for much of the time, we discover this lush and gorgeous corner of France with her. From regional markets and vignerons to antique fairs and three-Michelin star restaurants, Jane lets us into all aspects of her life in France. Most importantly, we see the chateau restored to its former glory, meet the local characters and discover the produce of Normandy at Jane's table - with 40 regional recipes.

“If as a child you loved fairy tales and dreamt of being Cinderella, or if you yearned to be the handsome prince with a turreted castle, you're going to adore Jane Webster's gloriously illustrated At My French Table.” —New York Journal of Books
“A love letter to France.” —Sydney Morning Herald
“Webster has a clever knack of bringing to life the five-story Chateau de Bosgouet. It's hard not to be bewitched by Bosgouet's charm, or inspired by Webster's warm and thoughtful depiction of French country life.” —The Food Sage
