I didn't realize A Table in the Tarn was solely about Le Manoir de Raynaudes, and the "lining, eating and cooking" revolved around this particular establishment in rural France, so I was somewhat disappointed, my mistake. That being said, I thought the presentation was very well done, the photography lovely and the recipes, a few of which I've tried already are superb. I would have preferred more meat on the bones to satisfy my tastes. I have read just about every book I can get my hands on about living, eating and cooking in rural France because I have spent the last 4 years renovating a house in rural France and plan to move there next year. I would definitely recommend this book for the recipes, but not for any insight into real day to day living.

A Table in the Tarn is a lovely book about how a couple of British gentlemen bought a farmhouse and transformed it into a gourmand's getaway. The text of that procedure is good, though not terribly inspiring. The recipes, too, are servicable but not great.

I was hoping for something more lively, personable, and found the text somewhat aloof and stand-offish.

The photographs are good, and the place looks inviting. I'd love to go and stay there. But then I'd love to go anywhere in southern France!

I have really been enjoying this book. It is well written and I have had a chance to make several recipes, all of which I would repeat. The granola recipe will probably become my go to for my everyday stash. The pictures and text are inspiring, make you really want to hop on a plane. I didn't give it 5 stars because the author seems to be an advocate of the microwave, there are a lot of recipes that call for its use, and I am not. I suppose this may be a necessity in a semi-professional kitchen, but this was a very slight turn off for me.Otherwise, a fantastic book I would recommend buying.

I just picked up this volume and have not been able to put it down. I love cookbooks that tell stories, even the day to day living. The way this book presents the story and the recipes is exquisite. From the manner in which the stories are told I feel like I have arrived in Southern France. The writer is charming and witty. I have not had a chance to try the recipes but they all look delicious, easy to prepare and ingredients that are not obscure. I'm always a sucker for good rural cooking and this book does not disappoint.

Format: Hardcover
When author Orlando Murrin decided to leave his London world and open a small guest-house with his partner in rural southwest France, he was taking on a huge project and a huge risk. His bet would bring him success beyond his dreams, transforming a modest ld manor house into a culinary destination and creating a table that's considered one of the finest in France. A TABLE IN THE TARN tells his story and also provides recipes of over 80 dishes. From Crisp Roast Duck with Olives to Celebration Chocolate Log, what also makes it special is notes on how to embellish the dishes to make them outstanding.
