Alice JoyceWillan leads a tour through French chateaus that spans the country from seaside locales to mountain retreats. She affords a delightful opportunity to indulge one's appetite for the beauty of these grand estates--with Christopher Baker's photographs exemplifying the luxuriant interiors, magical architecture, and beautifully prepared cuisine associated with chateau life and with French gastronomic bliss. But this is not simply a "visual" feast, for the more than 100 recipes for haute cuisine dishes will tantalize sophisticated cooks. And travelers to France will appreciate the listing of addresses and the details provided by those owners who open their chateaus to the public and provide accommodations, wine tastings, or tours.
