Synopsis: From the author of the award-winning A Food Lover's Pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela
Most of the early pilgrims were French and now Dee retraces their steps, seeking out the ancient paths through France. Dee's French pilgrimage winds through magnificent and changing landscapes: from Burgundy's vine-covered slopes to the gastronomic capital of Lyon; up onto the vast windswept meadows of the Aubrac plateau; along the dramatic Lot river; through the gentle hills of Gascony and, finally, to the trout-filled rivers of the Pyrenees. She meets the monks whose medieval predecessors planted the vineyards we see today, visits local markets with some of France's greatest chefs, cooks traditional recipes in home kitchens, and walks with farmers taking cattle to the high pasture.
About the Author: Dee Nolan runs an organic farm producing Nolans Road extra virgin olive oil and breeding Southdown sheep. Dee trained as a newspaper reporter on the Herald in Melbourne and went on to have a distinguished career as a magazine editor and senior newspaper executive on some of the world's leading titles in London and New York. She was three times awarded Editor Of The Year by the British Society of Magazine Editors (BSME). Her first book, A Food Lover's Pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, was recognized in the 2010 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards as one of the best culinary travel books in the world.
