Issue 184 – The best of Burgundy

Burgundy gets the epic coverage it merits in our Great Destinations guide, while for those who enjoy a little troglodyte tourism there is a guide to the alternative Loire. Delightful Vannes in Brittany is our city in focus and we reveal how Unesco labelling preserves the rich tapestry of French traditions and historic sites. Our food critic Alec Lobrano talks to us exclusively about his lifelong passion for French cuisine, while home cooks will fancy their chances with Cathy Gayner’s splendid classic recipes. All this plus your favourite regulars: language learning pages, best reader photos, prize crossword, restaurant reviews and much more.
