San Francisco Film Maker Christopher Strong had his own “Tour de France” dream. To spontaneously cycle the French Country backroads. With no fixed itinerary, tasting the land and the people as well as the food and wine. And so finally, after a week of irregular and informal French lessons from a Dutch friend, with no regard for the niceties of French grammar, Christopher’s French vocabulary was limited to five words. In spite of, or perhaps because of his lack of French language smarts, with no French phrasebook to save him, Christopher’s first “Tour de France” was a resounding personal success. Even on the French Riviera! Inspired by the overwhelming hospitality lavished upon him, Christopher decided to return and film his next adventure. And he continued, year after year. Until finally he had an up close and personal lifestyle/adventure series: “Bicycle Gourmet’s Treasures of France.” An authentic view of France today. After seeing the first results of Christopher’s “Tour de France” filming, his friends, not suprisingly, suggested he write a book. Not a book on French cooking or (shudder) French diet, but a behind-the-scenes account of his filming adventures. And his many encounters with French wine.
