Flavours of Korea


by Marc & Kim Millon

Published by André Deutsch 1991; reprinted 1995

Sub-titled "With Stories and Recipes from a Grandmother's Kitchen," this book is very much the story of Marc's octogenerian grandmother Bok Dok Sur who came to the island of Hawaii from Korea as a young "picture bride" in the early 1920's. At once an introduction to Korean cuisine with over 150 tested and delicious recipes, this book is also a family saga as well as travelogue to modern Korea as recounted in the sometimes humorous, sometimes serious and informative "Journal Notes" that detail Marc and Kim's first visit to the country with their then 5-month old baby son Guy. Illustrated with photographs, line drawings and prints by Kim Millon.

This lavishly photographed practical guide details over 600 regional foods and dishes, includes information on wine and other drinks, and includes over 300 addresses of recommended shops, restaurants and specialist food producers. Armed with this book, France really is your oyster!

The Food Lover's Companion Italy

by Marc & Kim Millon

Published by Little, Brown & Co (UK) 1996;
Frommer's (Macmillan Travel USA) 1996

Yes, we readily confess that we do have a real soft spot for Italy. And who doesn't? This is still undoubtedly the most simpatico country on earth, not least because of its rich and varied tradition of hospitality that begins always with a plate of food, a glass of wine. This guide, like its sister volume to France, is at once practical -- detailing regional and local foods and wines, and including hundreds of addresses of places to visit, where to eat -- as well as inspirational. It is indispensable both for the armchair traveller yearning once more for Italy, as well as for the visitor on the spot -- whether in popular places such as Florence or Venice or in deepest rural Italy such as Calabria or Sardinia. Buon viaggio e buon appetito!

The Wine Roads of Europe

by Marc & Kim Millon

Published by Robert Nicholson (UK) 1983;
Simon & Schuster (USA) 1984

An early and pioneering guide to wine tourism before this most pleasureable activity had yet mainstream. In the early 80's, even in the classic wine regions of Europe, the curious wine visitor and tourist was still something of a rarity, though none the less welcome for that. Though this book is now dated, it is surprising how much information is still valid and invaluable, covering all the classic wine regions of France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Spain and Portugal. Includes how to get there, where to stay, touring the wine roads, wine and related festivals, guide to the wines, wine producers to visit, gastronomic specialities, maps and addresses and telephone numbers.

The Wine Roads of Spain

by Marc & Kim Millon

Published by HarperCollins 1993

Spain's wine regions still remain very much uncharted country. There is a signposted ruta del vino in the sherry zone and a plan for a wine road in Rioja. Tiny Somontano in Aragon has a wine road, while some tourist organizations suggest itineraries into the wine country. But these are isolated or as yet incipient projects. This guide, the third in the award-winning series, fills a real need for the curious and intrepid wine tourist to Spain. For indeed Spain, the real Spain, is not a country for the fainthearted or overly timid. Like its wines, Spain is, above all, authentic and genuine, with its own inimitable and unmistakeable personality and soul. The Wine Roads of Spain will take you to the very heart of the country, the myriad and diverse regions that collectively make up this immense nation, stretched out like a tawny bull-hide tacked on to the very edge of Europe. Distances are vast, the roads often disty, and along the way it is likely you will work up an immense and healthy thirst. The well of Spanish wines is abundant and overflowing: drink deeply and enjoy.

Le Shuttle Shopping for Food & Drink in Northern France & Belgium;
Le Shuttle Small Hotels & Restaurants in Northern France & Belgium

by Marc & Kim Millon

Published by Pavilion in Association with Eurotunnel 1994

When Eurotunnel's Le Shuttle service through the Channel Tunnel was set to open, we were commissioned to produce these two official "Le Shuttle" guides to short breaks across the Channel. Indeed, two of the most compelling motives for such a sojourn are the chance to take advantage of the undoubted and unrivalled food and drink shopping opportunities on the other side, as well as to enjoy eating and drinking in French and Belgium restaurants as well as in staying in charming small hotels. These two books point the way to best of each, and cover areas and regions generally within a couple of hours' reach by car from Calais: Nord Pas de Calais, Picardy, Upper Normandy, Champagne, and Belgium. Not, perhaps, on the face of it the most compelling of areas to holiday in, but believe us, the ease of travel through the Tunnel combined with unspoiled country and some remarkable finds for good eating at whatever level make these regions not to be missed, especially armed with these indispensable guides!
