Here is a book for everyone who loves food and travel. It is a book that will introduce you to the foods of Africa, Europe and the USA with great company along the way. This is not a gourmand's book of overindulgence, but a slow savouring of the food that has nourished the author's imagination and taste over a lifetime.
The son of a baker, Julian Roup grew up in South Africa with two powerful food cultures, his mother's French-Dutch-Norwegian heritage and his father's Eastern European Jewish food tradition. The mix provided him with sophisticated and discerning taste buds from the earliest age.
His journeys around South Africa, Mozambique and Angola provide tales of adventurous travel well stocked with interesting food. Emigrating to the UK in 1980, he discovered a whole new world of tastes in Europe as he ventured into his new continent from Greece to Portugal, Spain to France and Italy, with visits to America's West Coast as well. He is as interested in the taste of bread as he is in cordon bleu.
Roup is best known for his books on the environment, horse riding, fishing and politics, but now he invites you to join him on his trail out of Africa to Europe and America, with all the colour and tastes of the places he fell in love with.
This is a book that will feed your appetite to break bread and to take to the road once more in search of the best the good earth offers us.
