SYNOPSIS

A memoir of love, life, and recipes from the woman who brought kale to the City of Light.
The story of how one expat woman left her beloved behind when she moved to France-her beloved kale, that is. Unable to find le chou kale anywhere upon moving to the City of Light with her new husband, and despite not really speaking French, Kristen Beddard launched a crusade to single-handedly bring kale to the country of croissants and cheese. Infused with Kristen’s recipes and some from French chefs, big and small (including Michelin star chef Alain Passard) Bonjour Kale is more than just a leafy-green. It is a humorous, heartfelt memoir of how Kristen finds herself in a new home and how she, kale, and France collide.

VIRTUAL BOOK TOUR QUOTATIONS

Library of Clean Reads

If you love memoirs set in France, like stories about the expat life, are a foodie or love to cook, then you will love Bonjour Kale. It’s heartwarming, inspiring, fun to read and it’s a clean read. It’s one of the best books I’ve read this year.

Words And Peace

Fascinating and very honest memoir of a New York expat in Paris, about her courageous mission and dedication to kale, despite obstacles found in a new culture and a difficult language.
One of the most fascinating memoirs I have read for a while! Plus, it’s about France, Paris, and kale. All good reasons to love Bonjour Kale.

Suko’s Notebook

I relish books that include recipes, and I was definitely inspired to cook with kale as a result of reading this memoir.
I loved Bonjour Kale!  It’s a merveilleux memoir, a well-written, intelligent story of success, and I enjoyed reading it very much.

Chocolate & Croissants

Kristen converted me to like kale through a few chapters.
The Kale Project is a fun read that I did not want to put down.  The book has a number of recipes that I am sure you will want to try out.

Reading To Unwind

I loved how the author was able to take her life story about moving to another country and incorporate it into the book it really made the story feel very honest and heartfelt.
I loved hearing the challenges of learning a new language, culture, as well as trying to find a new job all in one book.

Svetlana’s Reads and Views

The author has done an amazing job researching things about kale and introducing it to those who are new to the craze, as well as making it an exciting fish out of water story about a young woman who has moved to France and the daily struggles she experiences while living life there.
