about this item

From the author of the award-winning A Food Lover's Pilgrimage to Santiago de CompostelaMost of the early pilgrims were French and now Dee retraces their steps, seeking out the ancient paths through France. Dee's French pilgrimage winds through magnificent and changing landscapes: from Burgundy's vine-covered slopes to the gastronomic capital of Lyon; up onto the vast windswept meadows of the Aubrac plateau; along the dramatic Lot river; through the gentle hills of Gascony and, finally, to the trout-filled rivers of the Pyrenees. She meets the monks whose medieval predecessors planted the vineyards we see today, visits local markets with some of France's greatest chefs, cooks traditional recipes in home kitchens, and walks with farmers taking cattle to the high pasture.
