    Cooking & Travelling in South-West France This book celebrates the food, wine, history and culture of France’s South-West. It takes you deep into the Dordogne and the Lot exploring the underground caves and the food markets and discovering the land of black truffles, foie gras and confits, prunes, mushrooms, walnuts and chestnuts.

    We will be in France for 10 days in a couple weeks; I am trying to decide which guidebook to buy/take along. We will be renting a car for the first half and visiting Normandy, Brittany, & Loire Valley and then Paris for the second half of the trip. We are big foodies on a not so big budget, looking for places to visit that are off the tourist circuit; also looking for cheap to moderately.   No doubt Didion has now decided to publish “South and West,” two excerpts from her notebooks — written in the s — because they similarly shed light on the current political moment.

    To the west, the Atlantic Ocean curves along the French coastline, moderating altitude and winter weather (along with several smallish rivers) to create both maritime and semi-continental climates with plenty of rainfall. To the south, the Pyrenees Mountains separate France from Spain. Gensac Tower gite is a former windmill now converted to provide unique, quality holiday accommodation for two people in this beautiful, rolling, wine region of South West France.
