Designed for food aficionados and travelers who want to get to the heart of a culture through its cuisine, this richly detailed and well-researched culinary travel guidebook explains how to find the most delicious, authentic, and adventurous eating experiences in France. Author Ronnie Hess shares the secrets she's uncovered--from restaurant dining to home cooking to fresh market produce and street-vendor fare.
    Like other guides in the award-winning Eat Smart series, Eat Smart in France intertwines history, geography, language, and diet. It provides a rich, historical perspective on the origins and varieties of French food and extensive background on regional dishes. Included are two glossaries of terms in French and English:

* Menu Guide demystifies food selection, allowing visitors to order with confidence in restaurants
* Foods & Flavors Guide provides a comprehensive list of foods, spices, cooking styles, and more to make shopping in the colorful outdoor markets easy and fun.

    A delicious bonus is a chapter of authentic recipes from food professionals in restaurants and cooking schools, as well as from home cooks, which can be savored as a preview or reminiscence of a visit to France. Also included are chapters of useful phrases and travel and shopping tips.
    With the Eat Smart guides you can travel the world one sumptuous bite at a time!
