I'm very excited about the arrival of this book via post earlier this week. Nos meilleurs produits du terroir en France, published by Routard, is a guide to local culinary products across France. Listings encompass shops as well as restaurants, and there is an index for organic produce. It's already inspired me to map out some itineraries organized around a search for preserves, various meats, wine, and other delicacies.
I wish that we'd see the development of guidebooks devoted to local specialty produce in other countries. These guidebooks are good for small-scale farmers, rural tourism in general, and big eaters. I support all three.
(I also love the timelessness of the book's cover. Beautiful and 1970ish, right?)
