Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

While this might sound like a cookbook, it's actually a travelogue focusing on the foods of various regions in France. Instead of providing information on what visitors should see during their travels, Waverly Root reveals what they should eat. Root, who made his living as a foreign correspondent and has written several volumes on his penchant for food, is an excellent guide whose descriptions will convince globetrotters that there's much more to travel than sightseeing. The book, along with Root's The Food of Italy won the 1990 James Beard Cookbook Award.

Review

“The most lucid and definitive book ever written in English on a cuisine that has flourished for centuries.” —Craig Claiborne, The New York Times

“This taste saga merits huzzahs. . . . I hail Mr. Root’s research. . . . History, architecture, scenery, traditions furnish his place settings [and] color his commentary from Cro-Magnon cave living to
haute cuisine.” —The New York Times
Always the perfect gift
