Susan Herrmann Loomis visited and lived among farmers, cheesemakers, ranchers, and vintners from the Pyrénées to Alsace-Lorraine, from Normandy to Provence. The result is a stunning portrait in recipes, lively essays, and a wealth of tips passed down through generations of cooks. Here are dishes prepared by lifelong cooks, not chefs, intended to satisfy, not impress.
