So with his French Odyssey, Rick Stein hires a luxury barge to cruise the Canal du Midi and Canal Latéral à la Garonne whilst indulging in a few visits and doing a spot of cooking – and yet here is a cook and author who lives in South West France, writes and runs a cookery school – and who has sailed her own barge all the way from Holland through Belgium and France.
“Kate Hill is a gourmet chef who teaches cooking classes internationally and runs culinary tours on her 75-year-old Dutch barge in the Gascony region of France. Home chefs and armchair travellers alike will cherish this collection of tales along with 80 recipes from the heart and soul of Gascony. This book features full-colour and black-and-white photographs of the picturesque Gascony region and full-colour food photographs“
Furthermore she writes an interesting blog – Kate Hill’s French Kitchen Adventures although not updated recently.
