Alsace has always been one of France's best kept secrets. Bordering on Germany to the north and east, and Switzerland to the south, it has a rich and varied history and geography that are reflected in its cuisine.
Sue Style takes a gourmet's-eye view of this fascinating melting-pot of cultures. From the elegant city of Strasbourg, with its Christmas markets, mouthwatering patisseries and chocolate shops, the author transports the reader to the prosperous, wine-growing Haut-Rhin area, the breathtaking scenery and game-rich forests of the Vosges mountains, and the lush green pastures of the Rhine plain. Along the way, she introduces some of the specialties of Alsace, as well as many of the superb wines for which the region is famous.
On a varied journey through vineyards, tiny villages, and bustling market towns, a selection of delicious regional recipes is given.
There are special features on local producers of food and wine - as well as the foods themselves - that give a fascinating insight into this little-explored region. The book concludes with a Visitor's Guide of recommended restaurants, museums, and shops.
A superb selection of color photographs capture the beautiful landscapes, unique produce, and outstanding cuisine of the region.
