One Hundred and One Beautiful Towns in France


Beautiful towns in FranceThis book is beautifully illustrated as well as informative, in fact it's crammed with stunning photos of France. As well as being the perfect compliment for any coffee table or gift the book explores the local delicacies of a country known for and proud of its love of food and wine.

Organized by region, this book features a wonderful sampling of French plaisirs de la table and the shops and markets where you can find them. The classic dishes and drink of France are as remarkably varied as its many different regions: Quench your thirst with a glass of calvados, the heady apple brandy that Normandy is known for; reach "land's end" or Finistère in Brittany, and enjoy a galette, a savory buckwheat crepe stuffed with ham and cheese or mushrooms and lobster; don't miss the vendange (harvest) in romantic Burgundy or a simple, hearty meal of boeuf bourguignon; in scenic Alsace enjoy a piping-hot flammekueche, a tart of local cheeses, speck, and onions.

A thorough appendix provides useful addresses and phone numbers to accommodate planning your trip, including hotel listings, restaurants, wineries, and shops. Sidebars give information on local delicacies to be tasted and imbibed, as well as where to find the choicest goods.
