Summary

Summary

This cookbook constitutes a culinary exploration of the foods and wines of the Pyrenees region, whose mountains stretch from the beaches of the Mediterranean to the Atlantic coast. The author includes recipes from the Pyrenees' lowlands, which are known today as Catalonia in both Spain and France (Roussillon), Languedoc, Andora, the Midi Pyrenees, Aquitaine, the Basque country in both France and Spain, Asturias, Navarra, and Aragon. Each of the 86 recipes opens with a short narrative introduction that highlights the differences and similarities in the various cooking styles of this exciting culinary region that has been influenced by so many cultures. A separate chapter on wine summarises traditions that date back to the time of the Greeks and Romans and were kept alive in monasteries during the Middle Ages.
