From the snow-topped mountains and Christmas markets of Alsace to the winemaking region of the Bordeaux, the dreamy vistas of provence and the well-stocked larders of Brittany and Normandy, the author seeks inspiration in some of the best-known foodie places as well as uncovering hidden insights.
This book took me on an adventure around France by train, plane, bus, car and bike - at one point, I was even driving a minibus! Up winding roads and down dirt tracks, through howling wind, rain, snow, hail . . . you name it, I braved every kind of weather. I was a woman on a mission to discover those recipes, now long forgotten and stuffed in the back of a drawer, made by regional French grandmas. But not just the old recipes- I was interested to see what France looked like today. How was the younger generation eating?
Each recipe is a postcard from my little kitchen to yours, savouring the flavours, smells and textures that inspired me, and that I hope will inspire you too. Bon voyage on my little culinary tour of France! I hope you enjoy the trip. Rachel x
