Imagine a book that takes you all around France, the famous places and the byways you have never heard. Imagine having a tour of the regional foods and specialities that you can't even get in Paris. Finally, imagine this guide was written by one of the great chefs of the world: Joël Robuchon. That book is French Regional Food, which I love and heartily recommend. Use it twice: as a cookbook, as a travel book to tote around France. You can read the whole review, posted on Huffington, right here.
