hGoing country French

It might seem as if the odds are stacked against your incorporating country French style into your kitchen. After all, more than 4,000 miles, the Atlantic Ocean and that failing grade you earned in French class widen the gap between you and that French joie de vivre — joy of living.

But don’t give up just yet.

“Country French Kitchens” (Gibbs Smith, Publisher; $29.95; hardcover) by Carolina Fernandez makes crossing over from American style to country French look as easy — and tasty — as French toast, French fries and, dare we say, French kissing.

Starting with an overview of what makes country French kitchens so appealing to Americans, the book explains that it’s the value the French place on nurturing and enjoying life to its fullest that is so attractive. Subsequent chapters focus on the fundamental design differences between American and French kitchens, such as the French notion that decor should reflect family histories, connections and stories. This is contrasted with the American preference for a kitchen worthy of gracing the pages of a glossy magazine.
