Cooking & Travelling in South West France

Author(s): Stephanie Alexander


Travel with renowned food writer Stephanie Alexander to the gastronomic heart of France, the legendary south-west, and discover its food, wine, history and culture. Illustrated with magnificent photographs by Simon Griffiths, this book takes you deep into the Dordogne and the Lot (also known by the old regional names of Perigord and Quercy), exploring the food markets and discovering the land of farmhouse cheeses, wild mushrooms, confits, walnuts, prunes, black truffles and foie gras.
Stephanie immerses herself in the life of the region, speaking with small local producers and seeking out the custodians of the old cooking ways. In Cooking and Travelling in South-West France, she describes the rich food culture she found and shares over 80 original recipes inspired by the region, as well as recipes offered to her by the local people.

Join Stephanie to walk through the green forests, linger in tiny villages, shop in the markets and experience the sights, smells and flavours of this most beautiful and gentle part of France.
