In 2004 I watched as Lance Armstrong won his 6th consecutive Tour de France. I knew nothing about the race, apart from his involvement. Six years later, I'm almost an expert on the pelaton. For three weeks in July my conversation is all about stage leaders, overall leaders, breakaways, king of the mountain, sprints, time trials.
LiveSTRONG With A Taste Of Yellow was born from the Tour de France.
For the next 3 weeks a group of food bloggers will bring you the food traditions and recipes from the stages of the 2010 Tour de France. Recipes to represent each region the 2010 Tour de France will pass through.
Below you will find a link to all the blogs and the days on which they will post their recipe.
