Marc Millon has been travelling, eating, drinking, learning and writing about food, wine and travel for nearly 40 years. Born in Mexico, with a mother from Hawaii via Korea and an anthropologist father from New York via Paris, he was weaned on exotic and delicious foods. Marc and his photographer wife Kim are the authors of 14 books and are regular contributors to publications on both sides of the Atlantic. They pioneered a series of illustrated wine-food-travel books including The Wine Roads of Europe, The Wine Roads of France, The Wine Roads of Italy, and The Wine Roads of Spain. Other titles include The Wine and Food of Europe, The Food Lovers’ Companion Italy, and The Food Lovers’ Companion France. Marc regularly lectures and hosts gastronomic cultural tours to Italy and France with Martin Randall Travel, the UK’s leading cultural travel specialist. He and Kim also have their own wine company, importing Italian wines from small family estates. Marc has lived in Devon for nearly four decades; each year he hosts a gastronomy field trip to his adopted county for Oxford School of Hospitality Management students to learn about food and food culture directly at the source, meeting outstanding producers, chefs, winemakers and more.
