Hot Sun, Cool Shadow
Savouring the Food, History and Mystery of the LanguedocBook - 2004
Ten years ago, Angela Murrills and Peter Matthews began their love affair with the Languedoc. Stretching from the Rhone to the Pyrennees, it is one of Europe's oldest and richest regions, but unlike neighbouring Provence it is little visited. Its wonders include the castles of the Cathars; the Camargue, home to the famous white horses; superb Roman ruins such as the arena at Nimes; and Carcassone, Europe's greatest fortified town.But what really attracted Murrills and Matthews was the region's love of food and wine. As their trips became longer and the search for a house heated up, they began to discover another way of living, a slower one based on gastronomic pleasure and the really important things in life: hunting for mushrooms, visits to the market, long lunches and heated debates about the best way to make cassoulet.An unabashed celebration of the joys of food and cooking, Hot Sun, Cool Shadow tells the story of the author's discovery of the Languedoc, area by area, dish by dish. It includes more than 80 of Peter Matthews' delightful illustrations.
