Renowned for its tranquil setting, over the centuries the Loire Valley was a favourite of French royalty and nobility. We visit two historic sites - Chateau d'Amboise and Chateau Chaumont. This area also boasts a region of forests in Sologne. This area is also laden with many chateaus. We visit the town of Tours, a provincial town home of businesses, small industries and a university.
Recipes include: Matelote d'anguille de Loire, Col-vert de Sologne (Duck) and sable Tiede a la Rhubarbe.
Set in Paris and Provincial France against a scenic background, this series of shows features the preparation of a wide selection of traditional dishes and desserts prepared in their own kitchens personally by many of France's top three star Michelin Chefs: Pierre Troisgros, Paul Boucouse, George Blanc, Marc Menau, Andre Le Letty, Jean-Michel Lorain and other outstanding regional chefs.
