9780847842209: Hungry for France: Adventures for the Cook & Food Lover

Every food lover's ultimate dream is to tour the countryside of France, stopping off at luxurious inns with world-class restaurants and sampling fresh produce from local markets. Imagine having as your guide a bubbly bon vivant, someone who lives for the pleasures of the table and knows just where to ferret out all the delicacies in each town. This book delivers just that. Each chapter takes one of 13 regions, from Normandy to Provence, and first gives background on the roots of its particular style of cuisine. Then come descriptions of a handful of the region's most excellent, off-the-beaten-path restaurants, and recipes inspired by them. It's all written in Alexander Lobrano's inimitable charming style, the familiar voice of a seasoned traveler who's rediscovering many cherished memories along the way. Uniting all of the places in the book is an embrace of the farm-to-table ethos that has swept France's new generation of chefs. This is best embodied in the concept of the auberge -a country inn with a restaurant where all the food is supplied from surrounding area farms.But there are plenty of other stops to entice you to continue: vineyards, bakers, patisseries, specialty shops, and other places of culinary interest. The 75 recipes sprinkled throughout exemplify contemporary riffs on quintessential regional specialties. For instance, from Normandy, there are Shrimp Broth with Langoustine Croutons and Apple Tart with Calvados Gelee; from Provence, Beef en Daube and John Dory Roasted Nicoise Style; from Burgundy, Radishes Marinated in Walnut Oil and Black Cherry Clafoutis. Hungry for France will inspire you to transform your cooking at home as well as to plan the trip of a lifetime.

Revue de presse :

"I trust anywhere that man sends me!” —Christine Muhlke, Executtive Editor  Bon Appetit Magazine and wannabe Parisian

"I've long believed Alexander Lobrano, who's lived in Paris for 30 years, is the finest chronicler of all that goes on in French cuisine today. His enthusiasm alone makes reading him pure joy, and here he covers the different regions of France and its sprawling diversity of styles, from an Alsatian tarte flambé to from a Provençal ratatouille gratin." John Mariani, Huffington Post

"...for this food and travel writer whose latest book, Hungry for France, introduces a new generation of young cooks exercising their culinary creativity in the provinces...Part travelogue, part memoir, the book with stunning photographs by Steven Rothfeld includes profiles of carefully chosen restaurants and recipes like "Pan-seared John Dory with Rhubarb and Blue Crab Jus" and "Lemon Verbena-Cherry Clafoutis." Delightful also are the descriptions of the eating itself, whether Lobrano biting into a runny Saint-Marcellin cheese at a Lyon market or savoring langoustines in Brittany..." - Reuters

" Hungry for France, is a culinary love letter to his adopted country. It’s much more than a logical follow up to his earlier book, Hungry for Paris. This is a lively and opinionated hybrid, a mash up of travel book, cookbook, memoir and even coffee table tome, thanks to Steven Rothfeld’s wonderful color photographs. It’s a highly selective guide to restaurants, regions and specialties but also a road map for some of the newest culinary trends in a tradition-bound country." - EverettPotter.com

“He’s [Lobrano] made it his goal to explore France in search of “a spectacular meal [even] in its most remote and forgotten villages.” And explore he does. Lobrano tours the nation from le Nord to the Riviera, from soup to nuts. As each chapter presents a different region, Lobrano gives a thorough introduction about what makes its food special before sharing manageable recipes of all courses. Like the best cookbooks, this one belongs just as much on your kitchen shelf as your coffee table — to be enjoyed by chefs and prétendants alike.” – Metrosource

"If you’re even a little bit of a Francophile, or have ever found yourself daydreaming of a vacation in France punctuated by long dinners in the countryside, you’re going to want to get yourself a copy of Hungry for France. A cross between a memoir, a travel guide, and a cookbook, with all three components tied together by a love of French food, this book will have you planning your next vacation and tomorrow’s dinner at the same time." -Katieatthekitchendoor

"In his introduction to Hungry for France, Alexander Lobrano declares it an act of gratitude. He proves with every word that the remark is more than a beau geste. In this book, as in Hungry for Paris, he celebrates the country he calls home. When you read them, I think you’ll be grateful he has invited us to share." -Bonjour Paris

“Hungry for France
offers France to the armchair tourist as well as the cook…Lobrano delivers a peek at their restaurants, a sip of their flavors and recipes for enjoying their cuisine in your own kitchen.” –The Post and Courier
