Edible France: A Traveler's Guide Paperback – March 1, 1998
From Library Journal
Christian, the former food reporter and chef of BBC TV's Breakfast Time and author of The Gourmet's Freezer (S. & S., 1989), offers a gastronomic guide to France. Each chapter concentrates on a single region, discussing the culinary specialties, traditional foods, local produce, and wines of each. The book does not list restaurants, nor is it a cookbook. Other than the section on Paris, it does not list individual stores. Instead, this book will save travelers from embarrassment when confronting a baeckenoffa in a Strasbourg restaurant. With book in hand, one could stroll confidently into an epicerie or hypermarket and pick up local specialties. Similar to Frommer's Food Lover's Companion to France (Macmillan, 1996) and Passport's Food & Wine Guides: France (Passport Bks., 1992), this is essential for the epicure visiting France, whether for a holiday or an extended stay. Recommended for public libraries.?Ravi Shenoy, Hinsdale P.L., Ill.
