From Peter Mayle, a joyous exploration and celebration of the infinite gastronomic pleasures of France. Ranging far from his adopted Provence, Mayle now travels to every corner of the country, armed with knife, fork, and corkscrew. He takes us to tiny, out-of-the-way restaurants, starred Michelin wonders, local village markets, annual festivals, and blessed vineyards. We visit the Foire aux Escargots at Martigny-les-Bains a whole weekend devoted to the lowly but revered snail. We observe the Marathon du Medoc, where runners passing through the great vineyards of Bordeaux refresh themselves en route with tastings of red wine (including Chateau Lafite-Rothschild!). There is a memorable bouillabaisse in a beachside restaurant on the Cute d'Azur. And we go on a search for the perfect chicken that takes us to a fair in Bourg-en-Bresse. There is a Catholic mass in the village of Ri-cherenches, a sacred event at which thanks are given for the aromatic, mysterious, and breathtakingly expensive black truffle. We learn which is the most pungent cheese in France (it's in Normandy), witness a debate on the secret of the perfect omelette, and pick up a few luscious recipes along the way. There is even an appreciation and celebration of an essential tool for any serious food-lover in France, theMichelin Guide. "Here we have all the glory and pleasure of the French table in the most satisfying book yet from the toujours delightfully entertaining" --Peter Mayle.… (mehr)

An exploration of France's celebration and veneration of food items many think odd; such as snails, frog's legs and blood sausages. Mayle spends a year traveling to the various celebrations throughout France which feature one special ingredient. Rather than any grand analysis, this seems a really good excuse to travel and eat delicious things. His humor is fun, poking fun at himself and others and humanity at large, but not darkened by heavy sarcasm or ridicule.

I very much enjoyed this, probably as close as I will ever get to enjoying road trips in France. ( )

I picked this up as a way of traveling while stuck at home. It worked for that, but I was left wanting more. This was the sort of travel writing that makes me think about the place, not the kind that makes me feel like I'm there (or want to be there). That said, I do plan to read more by this author and I look forward to it. ( )

A fun read, with delightful little stories about visiting wine and cheese festivals throughout France. I enjoyed learning about some of the wines of the country. ( )

The author writes about food and wine in France.

I think I received this via a “white elephant swap” a while back. I’m not a foodie, and I’m sure someone who appreciates food, particularly French food, would get much more out of this. I found most of the food he discussed quite disgusting. I also don’t drink alcohol, including wine, though I think there was only one chapter on wine (maybe two?). At the same time, he actually is an engaging writer. And there were a couple chapters near the end that didn’t talk about food that I found more interesting – one was about food critics and travel guide ratings, and one was an entertaining chapter as the author and his wife stayed at a spa for a few days.

This book is subtitled: Adventures with Knife, Fork, and Corkscrew, and is another entertaining memoir of life in France by the former British advertising executive who now makes Provence his home. I’ve been a fan of Mayle’s since I read his first book, A Year in Provence. His books should come with warning labels – I swear I gain 5-10 pounds every time I read one. This particular volume has us following Mayle as he partakes of various food festivals around France – from frog legs to blood sausage and everything in between. Additionally we enjoy the scenery (i.e. nubile young things with teensy-weensy bikinis) and get an education on the fames Michelin guide and rating system. ( )

The early part of my life was spent in the gastronomic wilderness of postwar England, when delicacies of the table were in extremely short supply.
