Description

French Toast is a totally pleasurable insight into the sensual delights of France through the eyes and taste buds of Peta Mathias, television personality and food writer. The former owner of a restaurant in Paris, Peta knows how to get the most out of every minute she spends there. Savour crusty breads and fruity wines, endless varieties of olives and mushrooms, and experience the open-armed hospitality of Peta's friends and hosts. Staying in apartments, chateaux, old churches and even the odd garden shed, Peta explains how to choose the best produce available - and how to banter with local stallholders. Share her evenings spent in village squares, feasting and laughing the night away. Essential reading for anyone planning a trip to France, French Toast is crammed full of information about travel, regional food specialities and culture. Written with Peta's trademark verve and love of life, this is as close to being in France as you can get.
