Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Typically, guides are organized geographically, moving from country to country and continent to continent. That is not the case here. Chapter headings, there are 8 of them, focus on specific interests touting names like; Vintage Journeys, Meals to Remember, Good Spirits, and my favorite, Just Desserts. Don't fret, if you prefer the traditional format they've included a regional and an alphabetical index, with an added bonus of the Calendar of Food Fairs and Festivals.
