The Cookbook of the Major TV Series with Over 150 Irresistible Recipes.
A brilliantly evocative tie-in to the major 8-part Channel 4 series. Directed by Pat Llewellyn (who discovered Jamie Oliver and the Two Fat Ladies) this wonderful series follows John Burton-Race, his wife, six children and Labrador dog as they move from London to rural France.
Fed up with life as a two-star Michelin chef (apparently BBC's Chef series was loosely based on his L'Ortolan restaurant in Berkshire) John yearns for life in an old French farmhouse with chickens in the yard, peaches in the orchard, the sun on his back and Pernod on the terrace.
Irresistibly shot, the accompanying book will provide 200 sensational family-style recipes. It will also include the story of their year in France in the narrative style of Frances Mayes and Peter Mayle.
