Summary
A food writer describes the eight months he spent living in a deeply rural region of France and how he fell in love with the area, the people, and the food while herding sheep in the Pyrenees, harvesting grapes, and distilling Armagnac
Summary
Having visited Gascony and fallen in love with it, Chicago-based journalist David McAninch moved there with his wife and six-year-old daughter for an eight-month stay. In this rural, nearly tourist-free region of Southwest France, they slowed down their meals, lives, and responsibilities, and McAninch was able to harvest grapes, herd sheep, take cooking lessons, and learn about the local food and culture. If you like envy-inducing travelogues mixed with mouth-watering foodie memoirs (with recipes!), have a seat at the table with this atmospheric tale. -- Description by Dawn Towery
