DIRT Adventures in Lyon as a Chef in Training, Father, and Sleuth Looking for the Secret of French Cooking

by | Read by Bill Buford

Contemporary Culture • 17 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Buford narrates this culinary journey, taking listeners with him to Lyon, France, as he seeks to learn classic French cooking methods. Whether he's encountering famous French chefs or attempting to learn recipe secrets, his voice smoothly transitions between incredulity, awe, determination, and curiosity. His appreciation for the region's people and food is palpable as he regales listeners with his stories. Buford's voice is distinctive. He sounds like a regular guy, and his storytelling is unrushed--some may occasionally find his narration a bit slow. But taken together, such qualities convey a sense of friendly storytelling that reveals the hidden world of French cooking. Listeners will be drawn to the kitchen to cook alongside him.
