Most are faily simply recipes, but just delicious.
It's a cook book I can't be without.
Was just thinking about you. A book you gave me, Cuisine of the Rose, gave me some great inspiration for a vegan four course dinner I made the other night. I love this about old books--they predate when vast supply chains made everything-grocery tediously available. So though neither this book nor the region is vegetarian, the hilly Nicoise region, home to sheep and goats but not cattle, is free of the heavy dairy that influences much of French cooking to the north, and with the bounty of sunshine it instead relies very much on plant-based complexity. Thank you again!
Made me feel good about Johnston, my friend and the gift itself. :)
