Expat Books About FranceTrail of Crumbs: Hunger, Love and the Search for Home

By Brita Rosenheim

Trail of Crumbs: Hunger, Love and the Search for Home By Kim Sunée GRAND CENTRAL PUBLISHING; 374 PAGES; $24.99

Kim Sunée had all the ingredients of a fairytale life; abandoned by her mother in a South Korean market at age three, quickly adopted and raised in New Orleans, transplanted to Europe in her late teens, and before her 22nd birthday at center of a glamorous French lifestyle as the lover of Olivier Baussan, the founder of L'Occitane.

But despite the Cinderella-esqe elements, “Trail of Crumbs” is a powerful and moving memoir of a woman struggling along a path of self-discovery, and working her way through the wardrobe of identities created by those around her.

Rather than basking in the haze of happily-ever-after, Kim felt perpetually displaced with swirling memories of a far away place and the isolation of growing up as one of only two Asian children in her community. As she traversed the world, searching for a sense of home, Kim's enduring anchor was her connection to the warmth and comfort of foods from past and present.

Kim’s tale takes you around the globe, opening doors to colorful encounters simmering with flavors of France, New Orleans, Korea and more – and even includes her own collection of sumptuous recipes ranging from La Daube Provençale and French Fry Po-Boy (with horseradish crème fraîche) to Quick-Fix Kimchi and Swedish Potato Temptation.

Whether she is savoring fresh-picked figs dripping with their own milk from the Provence estate she’d become the mistress of, or recovering from an abrupt and torturous run-in with Oliver’s not-yet-ex-wife, Kim pulls you straight into her world as she gracefully narrates her intimate thoughts and stories of desire, heartbreak, wonder, ecstasy, confusion and glee.

Vivid and full of intrigue, “Trail of Crumbs” will appeal to anyone with an adventurous heart who is passionate about travel, food, or the ultimate search for self.
