Funny, passionate, outrageous and honest, this is a memoir about travel, house renovations, food, music, men and change. Peta Mathias has been making major moves in her life since leaving home to train as a nurse. Once qualified, she headed to Canada for six years, then on to live in London, before spending a decade in France, setting up her own restaurant. When she returned to New Zealand, she started writing books and making television series, celebrating her twin passions of food and travel. And she continued to yoyo back to Europe and started leading culinary tours to India, Morocco, Spain and the recurring theme in her life: France. Never ready to settle down, she next decided it was time to sell up her beloved cottage in Auckland and head back over there, to buy and renovate a new home in Uzes. This is her vivacious account of that move and of the many earlier changes in her life. The book explores what she has been running away from or to, the thrills and tribulations of reinventing yourself, as well as her loves for food, music, men and many more besides.
