9780099455073: La Belle Saison: Living Off the Land in Rural France

In this sequel to her international bestseller, The Ripening Sun, Patricia Atkinson limns a way of life centered on the seasons, the food, and the wine of the glorious French countryside. When Patricia Atkinson first moved to France, her intention was simply to establish a vineyard. Over the years, however, she found herself drawn into a way of life that, had she stayed in England, she would have scarcely believed existed. Grounded in the rhythms of the land and the seasons, daily life in Patricia's southwestern corner of France is dictated by a series of rituals and celebrations that have largely vanished in our age of supermarkets. La Belle Saison is a hymn to this way of life: a testament to the timeless beauty of the French countryside, her generous-hearted French neighbors, and the gifts that are offered up to those who care for the land.

Book Description Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. How often have you eaten a mushroom that you picked yourself that morning? Or sat on a boat opening and eating oysters as you lift them from the sea? Or partaken of a seven course feast of game to celebrate the success of the chasse? When Patricia Atkinson - bestselling author of The Ripening Sun - first moved to France, her intention was simply to establish a vineyard. Over the years, however, she found herself becoming integrated into a way of life that, had she stayed in England, she would hardly have believed existed. Grounded in the rhythms of the land and the seasons, daily life in Patricia s south-western corner of France is dictated by a series of rituals and celebrations that we have long lost in our supermarket age. La Belle Saison is Patricia s eulogy to this way of life: a testament to the timelessness of the beautiful French countryside, the bounty of the land, and the generous-hearted French neighbours who showed Patricia that a simple life has many rewards. In France, every season is la belle saison , offering up its gifts to those willing to appreciate and look after the land. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9780099455073
