When Words and Food Collide


hotdogs&croissants

Back in December, I was honored at the opportunity to narrate an audio book, HOT DOGS & CROISSANTS, by Victorine and Natasha Saulnier. To my pleasant surprise, it was a book about the culinary ‘misadventures’ of two French sisters, who came to the US as reporters, and along their travels discovered American cuisine, including Nathan’s Famous hot dogs at the annual hot dog-eating contest in Coney Island; snapping turtle soup as prepared by the Native American elders of the Alabama-Coushatta tribe; cheesy grits from the Armadillo Diner in Texas; and much more. They gained weight, then rediscovered their love the fresh and healthy diet they grew up on, and figured out how to eat well in America too, and lost it again.

Narrating this book was a great adventure for me, as my voice followed the sisters through many states and the people they met along the way. It is filled with wonderful recipes, some that they learned on their travels, and some very special ones from their childhood in France.

If you enjoy listening to audio books, I hope you’ll give this one a try! I know that if you join Audible.com, the first book you get is FREE!
