Hot Sun, Cool Shadow: Savouring the Food, History and Mystery of the Languedoc
by Angela Murrills, Peter Matthews (Illustrator)
A celebration of the joys of food and cooking, Hot Sun, Cool Shadow follows the story of Angela Murrills and the artist Peter Matthews, who travel together to the Languedoc.
The Languedoc is famed for its landscape, legendary gastronomic pleasures and rich culture, stretching from the Rhone to the Pyrennees, it is one of Europe's oldest provinces and one of it's most fertile regions.
Hot Sun, Cool Shadow, is a vivid account of their quest for the finest wines, cuisine and characters. Along the way they discover ancient houses, take in the scenery that inspired great artists like Henry Matisse, retrace the steps of Toulouse-Lautrec, and recreate typical dishes of the region; finally settling themselves in this staunchly independent agricultural region, where life moves at a steady pace under the mellow sun.
Hot Sun, Cool Shadow includes over eighty illustrations by Peter Matthews.
Ostensibly an account of working in a top class restaurant in the Languedoc, but actually another excuse for a ramble around the topic of the funny locals and some information on regional food.
