Carnet de voyage in China

2006
29 euros                                                                                                                 Where you can find it? Exhausted publication, you can find it at the author's home -look for contacts- (with his signature!).

I wanted this travel book about China quite different from my previous ones about India, Portugal or Saharas, ripe with time and chiseled by working.
I wanted it to be fresh and cool.
I wanted it as fresh as coriander recently cut and spread over a shrimps plate.
In China, vegetables are far less cooked than in France. That's why they have a special green color, a crunchy sound, a unique energy. I wanted this book to have this crunchy, green, spontaneous and variegated aspect of Chinese cooking.

A face led me to China. It is not easy to fall in love with such a difficult country. It's a so huge, complex and unisciplined universe at first sight that you can only aproach it on the tip-toe - and with the fringe of the brush. As far as travelling is concerned, I like the idea of "'approaching" : the discovery of a country and its people can only be done through several attemps. This four months travel book in China reveals my first approaches of a country I've got a whole life to discover. Tha'ts just a appetize, a fresh vegetables plate that will be followed later by a cooked text.
