Product Description

Review

'As well as providing more than 200 local recipes, she [Jeanne Strang] also shares personal anecdotes and stories, explaining the tradition and culture behind the cuisine of her adopted region. She gives you a real insight into domestic life in this part of the country and, as you turn the pages, you can almost hear the sizzle of duck fat in the pan and smell the ceps mushrooms and garlic in the larder[...]This is a book that you'll find yourself dipping in to time and time again.' --Destination France

'A wonderful collection of recipes.' --Paul Levy

'This eloquent, skillful book describes an often rustic, vibrant part of France, where the temperatures are too extreme for either butter making or olive production, so the cooks use poultry fat, and that gives the cuisine its characteristic flavour.' --Richard Flaste, New York Times

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 25 Jun 2013
Format: Paperback
It's good news to have this great book in a crisp new edition.
My old stained and scruffy copy has served me well for years!

Jeanne Strang's 'Goose Fat and Garlic' is simply one of the finest
cookbooks known to man or beast! It has been a firm favorite in The
Wolfcave for two decades. Mrs Wolf and I have been fortunate to get
to know South-Western France, especially the Languedoc and its robust
cuisine, during the course of many memorable trips to the region.

Mme Stang's recipes are blissfully authentic and recorded in simple
and easy-to-follow language. Cassoulet (an unctuous, scrumptious
and very rich stew of meat and beans) gets a chapter all to itself.
Local arguments about definitive authenticy for the contents and
execution of the dish are as alive today as when the book was first
published in 1991. The author's own version is utterly delicious!

The text is interspersed with charming stories, memories and observations
about Mme Strang's travels and experiences. She is a knowledgeable guide.

If I had to consider a last meal before the lights go out it would
look some thing like this : confit gooseneck stuffed with foie gras
to start; braised shoulder of lamb studded with garlic to follow and
Le Pastis Quercynois (a glorious confection of apples baked in folds
of filo pastry) for desert. The stuff that gastronomic dreams are made of!

If you love good grub, trust me, you need this wonderful book in your life!

Highly Recommended.
