French Colonial Cookery: A Cooks Tour of the French Speaking World
Ratatouille Creole, Habitant pea soup, Mauritian bredes au bouillon . . . the distinctive flavour of French cookery lingers in the nation's ex-colonies across the globe. French Colonial Cookery is a fascinating exploration of the culinary interchange between French colonies the world over. As French settlers began to put down roots abroad, they adapted their favourite regional dishes to accommodate exotic local ingredients and a new tradition of cross-cultural cuisine was born. Prizewinning cookery writer David Burton, author of the acclaimed The Raj at Table and Savouring the East, interweaves descriptions of indigenous dishes with a social history of their transformation by French colonists. Mixing recipes and chronicle, this is a mouthwatering exploration of the enduring French legacy in contemporary cooking.
