Description: Undoubtedly, France remains the stronghold gastronomy. No other country in the world can boast such an immense wealth of specialties. No other country has anything remotely comparable to its network of sophisticated restaurants, where thousands of chefs cherish the tradition of great cooking and show remarkable creativity in continually trying to create new delights. No other country produces so many different and excellent wines. The world's most famous varieties, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah, all originate in France.
Culinary frontiers are seldom rigid. Geographical, climatic and historical circumstances, however, create affinities. On the basis of these similarities we have been able to divide France into twelve provinces as regards the pleasures of food and drink. Each reflects its own individual character in exquisite specialties, some of which may well come as a surprise. How easy it is to miss out on something really good, just because we never knew about it!
It would have been impossible to include all the specialties of France in this Culinaria volume. But experts from the "metiers de bouche" together with first-class chefs from every corner of the land, have helped us to sketch out a new and up-to-date portrait of this gourmet nation which will be richly rewarding to everyone, whether they prefer to enjoy their favorite dishes on the spot in France or cook them in their own kitchen.
Or perhaps they will simply be enchanted in a completely new way by the enormous variety of magnificent photographs and tempting recipes, together with the knowledgeable text describing France's cuisine and what lies behind it.
