Stephanie’s celebration of the food, wine, history and culture of France’s South-West. Illustrated with magnificent photographs by Simon Griffiths, this book takes you deep into the Dordogne and the Lot (also known by the old regional names of Perigord and Quercy), exploring the underground caves and the food markets and discovering the land of black truffles, foie gras and confits, prunes, mushrooms, walnuts and chestnuts. In Cooking & Travelling in South-West France Stephanie describes the rich food culture she found there during her visits over the years and shares over eighty original recipes inspired by the region.
Cooking & Travelling in South-West France won Best French Cuisine book in the World, and Best Cookbook of the year in English at the 2002 World Cookbook Awards in Perigueux, France. It was also awarded a special prize, Prix La Mazille International in 2002 at the Salon International du Livre Gourmand, in Perigueux.
About the author:
Stephanie Alexander is one of Australia's most highly regarded food writers.
Stephanie has written eleven books, including Stephanie's Menu for Food
Lovers, Stephanie's Seasons and Stephanie Alexander & Maggie
Beer's Tuscan Cookbook (co-author). Her signature publication, The
Cook's Companion, has established itself as the kitchen bible in nearly
400,000 homes. A second edition of The
Cook's Companion was published in 2004. Stephanie is a passionate champion for Australian food producers. She was the original proposer of the Harvest Picnic, which is now an annual outdoor festival bringing together those who produce the food with those who wish to enjoy it.
Stephanie Alexander's philosophy is that there is no such thing as special
food for children: if food is good, everyone will enjoy it regardless of age. Her
latest publication Kitchen Garden Cooking with Kids, published in 2006,
tells the story behind the recipes of the Kitchen Garden at Collingwood College,
which Stephanie set up in 2001 in the grounds of a large inner-city school. It
includes plans, activities and lists that together make up a blueprint that
other schools may wish to follow. The program has given hundreds of
primary-school children the opportunity to plant, grow, harvest, cook and eat
the very best kind of food - freshly grown, organic, unprocessed and delicious.
