Inspired by his gastronomic journey through the idyllic waterways of Southern France, Rick Stein’s French Odyssey explores French culinary tradition – perfect for aspiring cooks everywhere. Beginning with a diary of his trip and then divided into 6 chapters, with classic recipes at the back, the book is illustrated throughout with stunning food and location shots. Rick’s culinary tour on an ancient barge takes him along the Canal du Midi from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean. His final destination is a little restaurant near Marseilles where several years ago he had the best seafood lunch imaginable. Along the way he samples regional foods from country stew in Castelsarrasin to the Montaine Noire hams of Castelnaudary. Further south he stops over in the Languedoc wine region and samples local delicacies before heading towards Marseilles via the Canal du Rhone. With over 100 recipes, Rick’s gastro-tour will motivate every reader to try French cooking again and again.
