The Gourmands' Way: Six Americans in Paris and the Birth of a New Gastronomy: A biography of six writers on food and wine whose lives and careers intersected in mid-twentieth-century France. During les trente glorieuses-a thirty-year boom period in France between the end of World War II and the 1974 oil crisis-Paris was not only the world's most delicious, stylish, and exciting tourist destination; it was also the world capital of gastronomic genius and innovation. The Gourmands' Way explores the lives and writings of six Americans who chronicled the food and wine of 'the glorious thirty,' paying particular attention to their individual struggles as writers, to their life circumstances, and, ultimately, to their particular genius at sharing awareness of French food with mainstream American readers. In doing so, this group biography also tells the story of an era when America adored all things French.
Best of the French Alps and Provence Tours 2018
See two of the most beautiful and exciting regions of France in one tour. From majestic mountains to crystal clear lakes, you will love the breathtaking alpine views. The colors of Provence with its lavender fields, blue shutters and red ocher hills will enchant you. The cuisine is excellent too, as experienced by our cheese and wine tastings and dinner at a Michelin Star restaurant. The history will seduce you with the regions' architecture and art, old towns, roman ruins, and medieval hilltop villages. If that wasn't enough, see pastures filled with colorful flowers while listening to the sounds of Alps cow bells, or fields covered in lavender near a famous Abbey.
