One More Croissant for the Road

One More Croissant for the Road (Hardback, edition)

By Cloake, Felicity

The nation's `taster in chief' cycles 3,500km across France in search of the definitive versions of classic French dishes. One of the chief pleasures of cycling, apart from the thrill of freedom it gives you, is stopping for lunch, so ravenous you inhale the bread basket before t...hey've even had time to bring over your beer. And France is a country whose roads, so straight and smooth and quiet, seem designed for cycling, and whose hearty provincial cooking, whether that's Moules Frites or Boeuf Bourguignon, makes the perfect fuel for it. To be hungry in France is to be fortunate indeed. One More Croissant for the Road sees `the nation's taster in chief' Felicity Cloake embark on the trip of a lifetime, cycling 3,500km across France in search of the definitive versions of classic French dishes. Felicity has long established herself as an absolute authority on everything that is important about food. This lively and charming account of her search for the ultimate Quiche Lorraine, la meilleure Tarte Tatin and a Cassoulet par excellence, culminates in a triumphant two-wheeled tour of Paris's boulangeries in pursuit of France's finest croissant. Accompanied by charming line illustrations, each chapter concludes with Felicity putting this new-found knowledge to good use in a new `perfect' recipe for each dish, the conclusion of her rigorous and thorough investigative work on behalf of all our taste buds. Felicity Cloake is the author of the Guardian's long-running weekly column, How to Cook the Perfect...as well as having been the New Statesman's food columnist since 2011 and the author of four books with Fig Tree. She was named Cookery Journalists of the Year at the 2016 Fortnum & Mason awards, and won the Cookery Journalist of the Year and New Media trophies at the 2011 Guild of Food Writers awards.
