A sumptuous French cookbook that immerses readers in the incomparable cuisine of the Périgord region, by the bestselling author of the beloved Dordogne Mysteries series, co-authored with his wife, food writer and novelist, Julia Watson.

Bruno Courrèges, the protagonist of Martin Walker's internationally acclaimed mystery series, is not only the local police chief of the idyllic village of St Denis. Bruno also happens to be an impressive amateur chef, and in this delightful new cookbook, the culinary and cultural inspiration behind Bruno's fiction world comes to life. Featuring local recipes, charming anecdotes, and a history of its French setting. Bruno's Cookbook invites readers into the bucolic life of Walker and his wife, Julia, and showcases their passion for the region's rich cuisine.

Brimming with truffles, pate, famed cheesemakers, and prized cows, the Périgord region is a gourmand's paradise. Bruno's Cookbook includes over 90 recipes, steeped in local flavours and prepared in Walker's cheerful country kitchen, from Duck Breast Fillets with Honey and Mustard, Red Onion Tarte Tatin, and a classic Beef Pot Roast, to Chard Gratin (Bruno's comfort meal), Hazelnut Meringue Cake, and Homemade Blackcurrant Liqueur. Centred around the splendid institution of the village market, the recipes are organised around the people who provide the food: the fisherman, the hunter, the cheesemaker, the forager, the baker, and the winemaker.

A feast for the senses, Bruno's Cookbook transports readers to France's gastronomic heartland.
