I have been singing a concert in Cruzy-le-Châtel, a little french village in Bourgogne. Not a very lively place, but an excellent forest to run in, pictured above. Also, a beautiful promenade, and a renaissance church. I’ve been cooking from the book “French provincial cooking” by Elizabeth David. Some of the recipes are very long and much too detailed (like what kind of cup to use for the cup measure), others are just a sentence, like the Niçoise salad of Escoffier. But overall her enthusiasm makes this one of the most readable cookbooks ever. And of course there are lots of good recipes.
