For anyone who loves to travel with a knife and fork at the ready, this book is a tasty gift.  This award-winning tome takes readers into the heart and hearth of the Dordogne, one of the most delicious regions of France where foie gras and black truffles are a staple, and where the cooking elixir of choice is duck fat.  Follow me down backroads and into restaurants, vineyards, markets, and the private homes of those people fortunate enough to call this fairy tale corner of France home including: Danièle Mazet-Delpeuch, a local resident and one time chef of French president Francois Mitterrand, and Wilna Wilkinson whose riverside castle is the perfect pied-a-terre for a Delicious Dordogne culinary tour.

Within the pages of this beautiful hardcover book are over 40 recipes from local residents and Chef Laura Schmalhorst, and over 80 color photographs by Lou Lesko.
