It would be difficult to find a selection anywhere in the world of more splendid restaurants, creative chefs, succulent dishes, harmonious odes to tradition, or convincing hymns to the art of living well than these forty featured restaurants. Prominent restaurant critic Gilles Pudlowski leads the reader on a gourmet tour of France, sharing menu selections from his favorite restaurants along with the stories behind the accomplished chefs and their kitchens.
From the Carr#65533; des Feuillants nestled between place Vend#65533;me and the Tuileries gardens in the heart of Paris to the elegant ch#65533;teau of les Cray#65533;res in Champagne that takes the visitor back to another era, and from the idyllic setting of Auberge de l'Ill in the verdant Alsatian countryside to breathtaking views across the sparkling water from the terrace at Le Petit Nice in Marseille, these are legendary restaurants that bring dreams to life.

Illustrated with Maurice Rougemont's enticing photographs, this finely researched bible of French gastronomy offers a feast for the eyes and the palate. World-renowned chefs include Paul Bocuse, Alain Ducasse, Guy Savoy, and Anne-Sophie Pic, and each has divulged two signature recipes to enjoy at home.

Addresses for all of the restaurants are included in the book for readers who wish to embark on their own gourmet tour of the finest in French dining experiences.
