about

“A delightful tale of how an American discovers le pays, the little France where the roads on the Michelin map are the thinnest of lines. It is the story of a young couple’s restaurant and the ancient French village that it brings back to life.” —Patric Kuh, author of The Last Days of Haute Cuisine

From Here,You Can't See Paris is a sweet, leisurely exploration of the life of Les Arques (population 159), a hilltop village in a remote corner of France untouched by the modern era. It is a story of a dying village's struggle to survive, of a dead artist whose legacy began its rebirth, and of chef Jacques Ratier and his wife, Noëlle, whose bustling restaurant—the village's sole business—has helped ensure Les Arques's future.

Sanders set out to explore the inner workings of a French restaurant kitchen but ended up stumbling into a much richer world. Through the eyes of the Sanders family, one discovers the vibrant traditions of food, cooking, and rural living, and comes to know the village's history. Whether uncovering the darker secrets of making foie gras, hearing a chef confess his doubts about the Michelin star system, or absorbing the lore of the land around a farmhouse kitchen table after a boar hunt, life in Les Arques turns out to be anything but sleepy.

Michael S. Sanders, a former book editor and author of The Yard, lives in midcoast Maine with his wife and daughter.
