Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

A superbly photographed compendium, this newest in the Culinaria series explores the pleasures of the French table. Having consulted with a myriad of food and drink experts--alongside top chefs, gardeners, farmers, cheese makers and vintners--editor Domin and photographer Beer capture the essence of regional culinary traditions. Organized into 12 gastronomic provinces, the book features foods, condiments, confections, wines, spirits and liqueurs indigenous to each region. Lavishly illustrated historical sketches and sidebars expound upon French staples--baguettes (Paris), oysters (Poitou, Charentes, Limousin) and champagne (Champagne, Lorraine, Alsace)--as well as such coveted delicacies as andouillettes (chitterling pork sausage). Discussions on livestock breeding, hunting, fishing, butchery and vineyards illustrate how each region best capitalizes on its natural resources. Readers also learn about lesser known regional specialties, including Orl ans vinegar from the Loire Valley, premium Echir butter from the Poitou and Charentes region and C vennes honey made from chestnut blossoms. Incorporating local and seasonal ingredients, the recipes highlight such regional cookery as Coq Au Vin de Bourgogne, Macaronis et Truffles d'Ici (chicken cooked in Burgundy wine with macaroni and local truffles) and Bas Rond de Lapin la Gaillarde (braised rabbit, Brive-style). Tapping into a splendidly varied gastronomic landscape, this cookbook is an erudite reference that goes beyond coffee-table prettiness. (July)

5.0 out of 5 stars Mouth-watering! Aug. 9 2002
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I borrowed this book from a friend, and now I want to buy the whole series. This book is amazingly detailed and informative, every food lover or traveller to France should see it. Photos of the regional cheeses, mouth-watering descriptions of how traditional pastries are made, names of all the different breads. This will make you look like an expert next time you drop in at your favorite Bistro, or order dinner in Provence.
A foodie's delight!

5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasure for all your senses Oct. 23 2001
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
The Culineria series are by far some of the best food books assembled.
I feel badly for the reviewer from Los Angeles who gave this book a 1 star rating (une etoile). The person who wrote that review appears to have never traveled and experienced the beauty of the shopping for the ingredients, the preparation of meal,to the friendliness of the dining experience of France and Europe(and this is what this book is ALL about).
I own the entire collection (from France to the USA and then some), and absolutely, the Italy book is beautiful--but making a a simple tomato based sauce is easy. Only a true "chef" could prepare and APPRECIATE the beauty of the French book (God help this person if they ever encounter the German book!)All of these books are GORGEOUS!
I HIGHLY recommend this as a gift, or just to add to any collection--you would be doing yourself a great injustice not to include these in your kitchen.I have given them as gifts and the reaction from the receivers has always been the same--"'What a beautiful cookbook".
Treat yourself to this one (or any of them), you won't be disappointed!!
P.S. My better half is Swiss France, from Switzerland (in the USA for 12 years). He is the one who insisted (but I didn't need much persuading) we include these books in our home. He should know, his brother is a patissier in Switzerland.
