I am currently hard at work in my bedroom checking the typeset proofs for my forthcoming book.
Due to be published on 28 August, ‘Menu from the Midi’ explores French gastronomy from the farmer’s field to the dining room table.
Concentrating on the south of France, the book is structured as a menu carefully compiled to give the reader a balanced diet of gastronomy, history, legend and local colour. Uniquely, it adds into this mix a celebration of the dedicated and passionate people who produce some of the finest raw ingredients and foodstuffs you are ever likely to taste.
I’m still waiting to see the cover design!
