SEVEN restaurants in seven cities in five days. It's a tall order, to be sure, checking out the most dynamic young chefs in southwest France, crisscrossing the region by car, covering more than 1,000 miles and consuming more than 37 courses -- and that's not counting extra treats like amuse-bouche and mignardises -- just to see what's cooking. French cuisine is in a funk, as chefs lose ground to the Spanish and the Brits.
