Description

From the author of the acclaimed "Food Lover's Guide to Paris," here is a passionate, discriminating guide to the rest of France-from the camembert farms of Normandy to the tree-shaded farms of Provence. Easy to find, or off the beaten track, steeped in tradition or newly established, her discoveries are too wonderful to be overlooked.
Chapters are arranged by province, and being with an introduction to the region, including a map, the best months to visit, and a schedule of daily markets. Entries include phone numbers, business hours, and specific directions where necessary.
Each chapter also serves up a bonus sampling of the region's signature dishes, all tested for American kitchens. Accented by over 150 evocative photographs taken especially for the book, and featuring a French/English food glossary with more than 1000 entries, this guide captures the food magic that is France. 59,000 copies in print. Selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club.
