I like the idea of reciting history in the bite-sized concept. Combining history, wine and culinary, "A Bite-Sized History of France" uses an interesting way to retell the history. Overall a great read but there are few dull moments. It's great to read a chapter or two every day. The chapters are short and easy to understand. 3.5 star rating overall.

A fantastic way to learn history! Rather than another boring list of dates, people, and events, the authors take a completely different route. Use the deliciously wonderful foods of France to explain history! Why did the Romans consider the Germanic tribes barbarians? One big reason was because they cooked their food with butter, rather than olive oil! They also drank beer instead of wine. How uncouth! Did you know why soldiers called the Germans krauts? Because of their association with sauerkraut! Potatoes, honey, champagne, crepes....it's all in here, and tied to historical events. I only wish that I would have had this book when I was a student. How much more interesting history classes would have been!
