Reviews - What do customers think about Food of France: A Regional Celebration?
Food from all over France and from the Caribbean Apr 7, 2007
Although she was born British, Sarah Woodward by instinct and desire must be at least half French. An accomplished French chef and living in France for much of the time, she travelled over the whole contry, visiting each of the major regions and carefully selecting samples of their particular style of French food.
She has distilled this down to some 175 recipies that cover the whole country. And surprisingly, whether by intent or possibly luch, I do not find these recipies scattered with all kinds of unobtainable spices and ingredients. To be sure, a few, but only a few. Some like creme fraiche can't be purchased locally, but it is not difficult to make.
In addition to the regions of France, the end of the book also has a section on French cooking as practiced in the Caribbean.
