I was reminded of this month’s book club selection, Joie De Vivre, when a member of my French Chic Facebook group mentioned it. I haven’t read it in quite some time and now seems the perfect opportunity to revisit an old favorite.

Joie De Vivre: Simple French Style For Everyday Living by Robert Arbor
When it comes to making the most of life, nobody does it better than the French. Now, with Joie de Vivre: Simple French Style for Everyday Living, an inspired fusion of art, style, and easy-to-implement ideas, anyone can feel like they spent a weekend in the French countryside, no matter where they live.
Renowned restaurateur Robert Arbor puts a refreshing emphasis on simplicity and accessibility, explaining the rituals and traditions that comprise a typical French day. Featuring dozens of simple, everyday recipes, Joie de Vivre captures the family meals, market trips, and charming domestic settings that make the French way of life so plea- surable. In eight chapters, illustrated with 85 full-color and black-and-white photographs, Arbor details how you, too, can achieve the simplicity and relaxing life the French treasure.
Note: This book will be available in paperback on August 4th. You can pre-order it by clicking here. I have had my hardcover edition for many years but it’s now extremely expensive in that version, if you can even find a copy. Fortunately it’s also available on Kindle at a reasonable price.
