I have been reading Mireille Guiliano's, "French Women Don't Get Fat". It was a widely proclaimed book when it came out. It's a good read, I like it. She expands on the French way/culture of eating; even the importances of indulging (chocolate, wine - in moderation, please). Heh.. but then, the French 'indulge' in wine with every meal. I guess it's 'indulging' to us North Americans (moreso a gastronomic 'sin'). Comes with some good recipes I might give a try.
