If the restaurant Vue de Monde is beyond your means, then indulge in chef Shannon Bennett’s follow-up to his hugely successful Paris and New York food and travel guides, Shannon Bennett’s France. This beautifully photographed hardback book is a compact guide to Shannon and his pals’ favourite restaurants, bistros, brasseries and hotels in France. Be warned, this is “fine dining” at its highest, and does not include street creperie stalls or market foods!
Traveling throughout regional France, the guide is also interspersed with Shannon’s favourite French recipes (accompanied by mouth-watering photographs), hotel guides, and even a list of the 75 best French films!
No French guide would be complete without a section on wine, and this volume includes a sommelier’s tips on choosing the best French wines.
A gorgeous Christmas gift or one to add to your own collection, Shannon Bennett’s France is in store now!
