Bonjour to the Alliance Française de Toledo,
My husband and I are long-time members of the Alliance in Charleston, SC. Seven years ago, we retired to France full-time. A former editor with Better Homes & Gardens, I now work in France as a free-lance writer (mostly for France Magazine and Living France).
We’ve had the good fortune to live in a 14th century château in the Burgundy countryside with a lovely French couple. Our experiences have been so unique that I’ve started a blog about them, and about French life from an American perspective. The blog is called Southern Fried French (http://www.southernfriedfrench.com). Because I love to cook and the French cooking experience is so different, each weekly blog includes a recipe, often a fusion of French and southern cooking. Readers can subscribe for free simply by entering their email address.
