SYNOPSIS

If you think French food is complicated, decadent, and heavy, think again!
If you think learning and exploring another language is difficult or boring, think again!
And if you think cooking French food and learning French at the same time is impossible, teacher and home cook Elisabeth de Châtillon is here to prove you wrong. It might sound too good to be true, but THE HANDS ON FRENCH COOKBOOK is full of healthy, simple French recipes that you can make for friends and family while you learn not only the French language but also a little bit about French culture in a relaxed, fun, tasty way.

Hall Ways Blog

As an admitted Francophile, I enjoyed every single element of the book: the author’s French style, reading the text in French (and then checking the translation), the simple-to-prepare French recipes (miam miam!), the additional cultural tidbits about where ingredients and dishes come from, and the beautiful photographs and fun illustrations.

SYNOPSIS

When she couldn’t do anything else, she went to Paris. This is a story of survival that cuts across death, cancer, Alzheimer’s, loss of home and homeland and cherished heirlooms and possessions, loss of shared histories, of hope for one’s children, of hope for the future, of love. But it’s also about finding love and unexpected joy. And about listening to the music and dancing.

Boys’ Mom Reads!

I was so comfortable with the author’s writing style. Her words flowed, and I willingly followed.
It was chockful of interesting tidbits and facts along with her absorbing story. The descriptions of the culture of the places she was living and especially that of the tango dance clubs were fascinating.
I highly recommend THE CHURCH OF TANGO for readers that enjoy women’s memoirs (this is a must-read!), memoirs related to dance, and true stories of living life to its best advantage.

 Locks, Hooks and Books

The Church of Tango is a fascinating memoir by Cherie Magnus.
She does not hold back on her emotions or how she was able to find her way of coping with tragedy.
It was an overall a very good inspiration. I think so many readers who would be able to relate to it.
I recommend it for readers who enjoy reading about real people, issues, how they are able overcome a devastating loss and able to heal.

Denise

Choices. This book is a story about choices, what to do when a beloved partner passes away from a dreadful disease, how to cope with life afterwards.
Cherie fought on. She has shown what a strong woman she is, even beating her doctor’s prognosis. All thanks to her love of dance!
