Publishers Text

One of the greatest incentives for travelling through the Channel Tunnel after its opening in 1994 will be to stock up on French food and drink. Already popular with people in the south of England, short breaks will become increasingly attractive. For the benefit of those shuttling through the tunnel in search of the best of French and Belgian food and drink, Marc and Kim Millon have compiled a comprehensive guide to the superlative range of produce available within reach of Calais: from pates and charcuterie to fish and fruits de me, from the myriad French cheeses to the unrivalled pastries, tarts and breads - as well as an in-depth buying guide to French wines, Belgian beers, farmhouse cider, Calvados and other traditional drinks. Part One focuses on the main types of outlet for food and drink, encouraging the shopper to experience the wealth of traditional specialist shops - boulangeries, patisseries, charcuteries, boucheries, poissoneries, epiceries and fromageries - as well as to enjoy the incomparable provincial markets and to visit and buy direct from farm, vineyard or brewery. Part Two consists of an in-depth regional listing of recommended shops and farm outlets in the Nord-Pas de Calais region, Upper Normandy, Champagne, Picardy and Belgium.
