As I have a house in the Auvergne, this was a must-buy for me. It details a way of life in a part of France which is rarely visited by the ordinary tourist.. Those who do visit are hikers, climbers, cyclists and others who like the outdoors, as well as those French families whose roots are in the area, but whose predecessors moved away for work elsewhere. This book, with its chatty yet informative style, has given me an insight into the deely rural life and food of a fascinating and little-known part of France. ( )

I bought this in a charity shop on my way to a JISC meeting in Berkhamsted. I read some of it on the train back into London. It looked really interesting (more interesting than the meeting) about food and life in the Auvergne. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0670880698, Hardcover)

When cookbooks describe well-known traditional recipes, they usually provide some sort of introduction or background to the dish. All too often one would like to know more, but it is only too rarely that such matters are discussed at length. For most cookbooks are obliged to give priority to the quantity of recipes they include, and cannot afford to be as comprehensive or discursive as they would like to be. In this book, each chapter covers a different dish at the length it deserves, mentioning its origins, etymology, geographical spread, folklore and even appearance in history and the arts, and its different versions.
