Author Q&A
Christine Wells, author of The Juliet Code, shares her obsession with dangerous women and the French Resistance with Word of Mouth TV. Set in wartime France when rations were in place, Christine hones in on the delicacies - all the items that weren't available, such as coffee - and relays the exquisite delight her characters experience when they sample their favourite rare fare. For Christine, the physical memory of a food can be one of the most powerful food experiences, which perhaps explains why she is going "retro" for her death-bed meal.

She was no doubt dining on glorious French baguettes and cheese all the way and we agree that no finer bread is to be found in all the world than the baguettes made in France. I am sure authors everywhere will be making a mental note to set their next novel in Paris.
