Fricot Editions editor Robert Allen said: ‘This is the first in a series of pocket books about the traditional foods of Europe and how they are being reinterpreted by clever cooks and creative chefs.’
‘There is renewed interest in the foods our great grandparents took for granted. These dishes are part of the fabric of community life, in the cities, towns and villages, and nowhere is this better illustrated than in alpine Europe, where traditions have a habit of remaining faithful while being constantly updated.’
Ice Trains and Snow Food is the first volume in a series of pocket books about the alpine and carpathian regions of Europe.
