Chateau, Jardin, Cuisine highlights the exquisite food and culture of France’s hidden Ardèche region, where Mediterranean traditions combine with the classic cuisine of its northern plateau. Famous for goat cheese and chestnuts, the food of the Ardèche evokes memories of stony fields and rugged castles; remote farms and old stone houses; rivers of eel and wild trout in rock pools; and mountainous land where autumn brings an abundance of game, wine, and mushrooms. Yet, nature has also dealt the Ardèche a difficult hand: the dry soil and steep terrain make farming and cooking with the produce a true labor of love—just like this book.

Explore the Ardèche countryside through the stories of the local families, friends, and neighbors that make up its vibrant community and experience its cuisine through sixty recipes from some of the region’s best cooks. Accompanied by more than two hundred photos, Chateau, Jardin, Cuisine is a celebration of the traditions and history of this remote southern region of France.
