I ve set this book down for a minute But again, an extrememly comprehensive history of french cuisine. I do not know how to rate this, as reading it is unlike any other reading I do I provides a very good overview of how French cuisine is organized, some specifics to ground the idea of terroir in practices, and some narrative of his own experiences eating and drinking around the country.In places, it goes back to ancient Greece, and in other places it s current up to the 1950s It s didactic, sometimes over explained, and not arranged for narrativity or pleasure reading per se Yet, I m glad to have read it If nothing else, I will have a much better idea what foods on the menus are actually local and which are aiming to meet tourist expectations Also, I know a lot varieties of light, white French wines, which is never to the bad.

This book has a little bit of everything History both natural and human , geography, sociology, recipes, adamant opinions, and lovely descriptions of landscapes I mostly let the details wash over me, and I don t think I really learned a lot But if ever I get the chance to travel the French countryside, this book will have been my inspiration for doing so, and I will want a copy with me.Grasse sounds right for me land of lavender, perfume, and candied flowers Sign me up. I read only about the first 3rd of this bookit is so dense with wonderful information, and can t really be read straight through, cover to cover, but used as a reference of French culinary history It was written in the late 50 s, so is not a current where to go what to eat in France, but well worth reading to gain a fundamental understanding of French cuisine.I ll buy this book, and happily read a chapter here and there for years. Wonderful read even after so many years I love how Root, even though he s American, doesn t come across as Mr know it all who wants to tell the French how to cook I guess that s a recent thing in food literature A brilliant travelogue through the lens of food and farming and food production that clearly no longer exists Brilliant and entertaining writing. Truely beautiful Gruff in nature, the author brings to me the France I live in That another American could find the true nature of France , brings me joy. Its a very thorough book about the food of France, but I wonder if its still the same after all these years It is definitely informative about the regions of France and what type of foods they use to eat and enjoy It also describes the geography and weather and how that effects the regions and what they grow and raise for food.
Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Food of France book, this is one of the most wanted Waverley Root author readers around the world.
