Overview

Tessa Kiros, renowned for her exquisite food and travel books, takes us on a fascinating journey across the globe to explore French culinary influences in far-flung destinations. Her journey begins in Provence, where Tessa first fell in love with French food, and explores the Mediterranean region's links between the indigenous ingredients, flavours, materials and traditions. She then takes the path of early French explorers, travelling to the island of Guadeloupe in the Caribbean; Vietnam in South-east Asia; Pondicherry on the Bay of Bengal, India; La Reunion, a French island in the Indian Ocean; finally returning to France and landing in Normandy, where the cuisine is so different from the South of France. In each destination, Tessa delves into the history and culinary traditions of the country (or region), discovering how French cuisine has become embroiled with local ingredients and traditions. The result is an intriguing collection of recipes that will appeal to all those with a broad interest in food and culture.

Reviews

a physically beautiful volume, designed to look a little old-fashioned - like something you might find in the attic in an old steamer trunk that once belonged to your globe-trotting bohemian uncle. The matte-finish pages are full of appetite-stirring shots that are only slightly over-propped; photo collages by the food and travel photographer Manos Chatzikonstantis evoke the spirit of each of Ms. Kiros's subject places. The recipes themselves are almost all the kinds of things that any reasonably cosmopolitan cook would be happy to tackle. They are clearly written and capable of yielding delicious results -Wall Street Journal 'Review'
