An authentic collection of regional recipes from native French chef

Gabriel Gaté gathers together the classic recipes from more than a dozen iconic regions of France. France is home to outstanding fish and seafood, excellent wines and liqueurs, extraordinary cheeses, a unique range of charcuteries, and delicious bread, cakes, and pâtisseries, making it one of the world's favorite foodie destinations.

Gaté selects the best dishes from each of the regions, such as chicken casserole vallée d'auge from Normandy, duck ballotine from the Vendée region, scampi and artichoke crêpes from Brittany, the colorful ratatouille with lemon chantilly from Provence and, of course, lovely desserts, as only the French can conjure, including the luscious strawberry tart from the Loire Valley or rum savarin from the Lorraine region. Gaté's knowledge and passion are expressed withan eloquent, informed, and familiar manner that make for a great introduction to French cuisine.
