Inspired by the wonderful local produce of the Quercy Blanc region of South West France, Belinda Berry has created a fabulous looking book of fabulous tasting food. All the dishes have been cooked for her guests who come from all over the world to enjoy an Images of France photography holiday. From Nibbles to Desserts, the book is full of easy to prepare recipes, each of which are identified as to whether they are Wheat Free, Dairy Free, Vegetarian, Low Fat or Low Sugar. This is not a book about French cookery, it is a book about cooking in France, that will make your mouth water just to look at! Over 160 recipes, liberally illustrated with full colour photographs throughout, by Graham Berry and guest photographers.

Admittedly, it was cooked for me by Belinda herself while I was on a photography course run by her husband, but the food is gorgeous. I didn't buy a copy of the book at the time as I wasn't into cookery but my friend did and now I don't have to borrow hers all the time! The Mediterranean Chicken Slice is divine (and I don't like most of the ingredients individually!)
Love this book. Love this food. Go back to it time and time again. My visitors love it too. The excellent presentation of the book allows it to be left on the coffee table even though not a hardback. Highly recommended.
A truly inspiring book!
I was given this book as a gift and I liked it so much that I bought a some more copies to give to friends and family. The writing style is light-hearted and often humorous making it enjoyably easy to follow.
Beautifully presented, these mouth-watering recipes make you want to head straight for the kitchen and get cooking. I particularly like the Sticky Orange Duck and the Blue Cheese and Pear Tart is a perennial favourite in our house.
The photography is stunning making the book as much at home on the coffee table as in the kitchen.
