Lonely Planet France and Mexico


These two new food guides, with the unmistakeable thoroughness and finesse for which Lonely Planet guides have become known, are sure to be popular with both foodlovers and travel addicts.

Each book features recipes from local people, both home cooks and chefs, along with background anecdotes and tips. Arranged by regions, to make using the book easier for travelers, it is also a way to see how food varies throughout each of these two countries.

Whether you are learning how to create chocolate and chilli-spiked bunuealos ( a round deepfried fritter from Mexico) or the flakily delicious kouign-amann, a butter cake from France's Brittany region, these books are the perfect guide.

So you can now effortlessly transport yourself and your family to a hacienda in Mexico one day, then make believe you have escaped to a family-run bistro in France the next.

Lonely Planet Food: From the source - France, and From the source - Mexico, Published by Lonely Planetfull colour and hardcover, rrp AU$34.95 each.
