hungry for franceicon 2Hungry for France, Adventures for the Cook & Food Lover  by Alexander Lobrano

This gorgeous new book by Alec Lobrano is a real Tour de France but with a fork and a knife.  In his pursuit of a spectacular meal, he takes the reader on a culinary tour of the countryside of France,  from north to South,  to quaint inns, amazing food producers, restaurants and markets where you can eat the local specialties .   The book with amazing photographs could be entitled “ around France in 80 meals.”  But there is more, much more than that.
