Show synopsis Rolling vineyards with world-famous names. A wave from the gardener tending her potager. Pan bagna in the village square for lunch, and the prospect of dinner at a three-star inn to get you through those last five uphill kilometers. Bicycling through France brings you into intimate contact with the land, the people, and the food-especially the food. It's an experience that Sarah Leah Chase, acclaimed cookbook author, gourmet food-shop owner, and, since college, bicycle tour guide for Butterfield & Robinson, celebrates in "Pedaling Through Burgundy." Illustrated in full color and peppered with anecdotes and travel writing, cooking tips and wine notes, the book is a personal cookbook with a select but dazzling collection of recipes. It evokes the famed land of big red wines with hearty food to match: a classic French Onion Soup Gratine, Boeuf Bourguignon with a twist-the meat is grilled- Venison Ragout with Whole cloves of Garlic and Dried Fruits, and desserts including Pinot Noir Gratine, Warm Chocolate Boules with Strawberry Beaujolais Sauce, and Colette's Lemon Tart.
