I simply couldn't believe that anyone hadn't already reviewed and raved about Paula Wolfert's Cooking of S-W France. More than a cookbook, Wolfert takes us on a journey through one of the most wonderful regions of French cuisine. Written in an intelligent and passionate manner, she provides all the classics and adds many other recipes and insights collected during her travels through the region. If you adore french country cuisine, and you haven't seen this book already, you've missed something! Together with Jeanne Strang's "Goose fat and Garlic", I would rate this in my top ten French cookery books.
