    This is much better than one might expect from a tie-in to a TV series. It is available very cheaply from used book sellers, and well worth the small investment.

Publishers Text

The author of Rick Stein's Seafood - -winner of the coveted James Beard Cookbook of the Year Award in 2005 - -returns with this superb new collection of regional recipes from the South of France.

Inspired by his gastronomic journey through the waterways of Southern France, Rick Stein's French Odyssey is a delightful exploration of French culinary traditions. Rick's gastro-tour (aboard an ancient barge) took him along the Canal du Midi, from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, as he sampled the local delicacies. Among the recipes he's gathered here are the classics -- Pissaladière, Bouillabaisse, Cassoulet, Tarte Tatin -- as well as new takes on traditional ingredients, including Rabbit with Prunes and Polenta, Seared Foe Gras on Sweet Corn Pancakes, and Prune and Almond Tart with Armagnac. Lavishly illustrated with color photos of the food and the landscape, this is a glorious record of an idyllic culinary tour of rural France.
