A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

De Groot (1910-1983), a masterly writer on food and wine, gives life to the world and food of a country inn high in the French Alps, beyond Grenoble, where he explores the lives and the seasons of the auberge and of the two remarkable women who own it. Nearly sightless since 1940, when he was injured during the blitz of London, De Groot brings together a highly visual account of a constantly changing montane valley and its products, exploring the natural world, the rich culinary traditions and the crisp but loving professionalism of the aubergistes. Although filled with recipes, this is not a cookbook as much as it is a book about experiencing food and the natural world - from streams and rain showers to rocks and soil to meadow herbs, wild garlic, country markets, fish of the mountain lakes, wines, cheeses, rustic kitchens, wood-burning hearths and the intense pride in terroir and tradition.

Description de la librairie

Located in the heart of historic downtown Springfield, Prairie Archives has been serving Central Illinois since 1973. We have occupied three locations since our founding and our current store has been located at 522 E. Adams since 1992. We have approximately 250,000 books in stock, documents, manuscript material, posters, prints, comics, collectibles, magazines, political buttons, postcards and lots more! If you don't see a title you're looking for, please feel free to inquire; only a small part of our stock is catalogued. Our store hours are 10-5 Central time Monday through Saturday. We also carry a line of t-shirts, including the ever-popular "Abraham Lincoln: They'd have to shoot me to get me back to Springfield" and "Frank Lloyd Wright: I can design a building that would look good even in Springfield". Please inquire about our other designs, sizes and prices. And of course, we can't leave without mentioning Hannah, our golden retriever. She has run things here since she was a puppy [October, 1994]; she brings more business to the shop than anyone else. Always friendly, cheerful, and affectionate (especially when someone has food!) She has recently been joined by Ruby, a young and energetic black lab. Hannah and Ruby say "Come See Us!"
