About this title


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.
