Winner of the 2012 Gourmand World Cookbook Award
A celebration and critique of the changes in the French culinary landscape and a gastronomical excursion across the French countryside in search of the unsung cooks who are still doing it right. A culinary memoir that brings to life some of the most fascinating, glamorous food years in France and reveals gastronomical treasures from gifted artisans of the French countryside. From small cafes in Paris to Normandy, Alsace, the Basque country, and beyond, Dryansky takes us on a sweeping sensory journey, with a voice as thoughtful as Kingsolver, as entertaining as Bourdain, and as cogent and critical as Pollan.
