Food Wine Burgundy
A Terroir Guide
By David Downie
Photographs by Alison Harris
"Downie...succinctly maps and divides Burgundy into four regions, walking readers through each town and discussing lodgings, markets, artisans, and vintners.... Beautifully depicted, handily sized, and substantially sourced for contact info and seasonal hours. Not a stand-alone general guide, this book is a regional standard for oenophiles and the palatably enchanted traveler. Highly recommended." —Library Journal, 2/15/10, Starred Review
Vast, varied, and scenic, Burgundy covers much of eastern-central France. This is what Frenchmen affectionately call la France profonde—deep, rural France. David Downie has discovered and described dozens of luxurious restaurants and simple auberges—places whose cooks still work from scratch, using local ingredients, serving traditional or updated regional fare that captures the spirit of terroir. In addition to the legendary vintages, Burgundy produces a range of underrated, affordable, outstanding wines—you'll find them all in Food Wine Burgundy.
