Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
When Mimi Thorisson and her family moved from Paris to a small town in out-of-the-way Medoc, she did not quite know what was in store for them. She found wonderful ingredients-from local farmers and the neighboring woods-and, most important, time to cook. Her cookbook chronicles the family's seasonal meals and life in an old farmhouse, all photographed by her husband, Oddur. Mimi's convivial recipes-such as Roast Chicken with Herbs and Cr me Fra che, C pe and Parsley Tartlets, Winter Vegetable Cocotte, Apple Tart with Orange Flower Water, and Salted Butter Cr me Caramel-will bring the warmth of rural France into your home.
Spring -- Summer -- Autumn -- Winter.
A French-cooking blogger describes and photographs her family's meals--made using local ingredients--at their farmhouse in Medoc, including almond gazpacho, quail grilled over grapevines, and apple tart with orange flower water.
