Walnut Wine and Truffle Groves
Culinary Adventures in the Dordogne
By (author) Kimberley Lovato By (author) Laura Schmalhorst Photographs by Lou Lesko

Summary

Pull up a chair and visit the Dordogne (called Périgord by the locals) the way it should be visited: one bite at a time. Walnut Wine and Truffle Groves is a culinary travel book that navigates the back roads—as well as the menus and markets—of the southwestern region of France with newfound excitement. Through interviews with local home cooks and chefs, visits to local farms, historic sites and wineries, market tours, and serendipitous detours, Lovato provides a glimpse into this unspoiled wonderland. The alluring recipes and stunning photographs let readers discover the true jewels in France’s culinary crown as well as discover the country’s most beautiful and less trod-upon provinces.
 
Winner of the 2010 Gourmand World Cookbooks Award (USA) for Culinary Travel in the category of Lifestyle, Body and Soul and a Cordon d' Or - Gold Ribbon International Culinary Academy Award in 2011.
