Re: Let's Eat France

My husband bought me the wonderful
‘Let’s Eat France’ for my birthday. It is such an amazing book- and the tarte tatin Camembert has been a great hit! Thank you for the recommendation.

Hi,

There is an office for Budget car rentals in Amelie.

You need to go on their website for address and opening hours.

We have never hired through them so can't comment on prices.

Hi,

Thank you for the suggestion.

I had ordered it a couple of weeks ago on Amazon but received an e mail this week to say that they no longer have it in stock and don't know when they will be getting it.

As it is for a birthday present that wasn't much use!
