Publisher's Summary

Dame DJ is English, and together with her partner, "S", a New Yorker who loved great food and wanted to sample the best dinning in France, now tells us their story.

He thought France was small, and that the best hotels and restaurants from Paris to Monaco would be waiting for them. She thought she could eat and relax, and the trip would be a breeze. They were both wrong!

They hired a car and drove from Paris to Monaco, through the special Loire Valley, visiting the magnificent Chateaux Amboise, Chambord, Chenonceaux, and Montrichard, down through romantic Provence, and on to the glamourous Cote d'Azur, staying at Relais Chateaux along the way.

Gourmet dining at some of the world's most famous places, including Maison Troisgros, Chateau de Codigant Colombe d'Or, and the wonderful Bernard Loiseau, made it the trip of a lifetime, but reality soon took over.

It opened up a whole new world of sensations, discoveries, joys, hardships, illness, intensity, beauty, talents, and artistry, all unique to France, and so they became Gourmands on the Run!

Arriving hot, tired, hungry, and with and without reservations; ordering from oversized menus; and paying some heavy prices, they were welcomed and looked after like long lost family, one night at a time.

They drove, they ran, they ate, they packed, then they unpacked yet again...and with every minute, we are right there with them, along for this amazing ride.

    Story
    "Travel guide or foodie guide?"

    The book covers details of travels in France, lists the menus of various restaurants visited during the travels and gives a few insights into the personalities of the travellers. Unfortunately it is very superficial in all three of these areas.
    The narrator does a valiant job of making the the book interesting but is held back by the material.
