Présentation de l'éditeur

'A constant on my camino was the powerful sensation of a message across time, a guiding hand reaching out to me from those who had passed this way before.'
A thousand-year-old pilgrimage route and food traditions stretching back de toda la vida - since forever. These are what Dee Nolan set out to experience on her pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela - through the rich farming lands of southern France and northern Spain, green Spain. The monks who came here in the Middle Ages to look after the first pilgrims planted grapevines from their homelands far away. Now food lovers come seeking the magnificent wines made using grapes grown in those same ancient vineyards, along with sublime cooking and fresh, luscious produce.
Dee's own emotional journey along the Way of St James - el camino de Santiago - took her back to the very heart of things: why we should care about what we eat and how it is produced, why we need escape valves like the pilgrimage in our busy modern lives, and why she found herself, after a long career in publishing, back on her grandfather's farm and connecting with the soil.
This joyful book tells the story of Dee's camino, of the pilgrimage itself and of the food traditions that sustain us all. Following the route of those first pilgrims, Dee met wise cooks and farmers who are finding that the future lies in the past. And she realised why, in our secular age, we are so captivated by this medieval Christian pilgrimage.

Biographie de l'auteur

Dee Nolan, an award-winning journalist and editor, has worked for leading newspapers and magazines in London and New York. While still living in the UK, she and her husband, John Southgate, bought back her family farm, Gum Park, in the Limestone Coast of South Australia, and they began a long-distance restoration of the house and property. Established by Dee's grandfather a century ago, it had been out of family ownership for twenty-five years. Dee now lives in Australia, dividing her time between Sydney and the Limestone Coast. Her passion for olives and commitment to sustainable farming has been realised in the certified organic olive oil, Nolans Road.

I love this big, fat, beautiful book! 4 octobre 2014

I love this big, fat, beautiful book! (It weighs over 2.5kg!) I love the tactile cover, all of the 390 glossy pages with gorgeous, generous photographs, many double spread pages. I love that the author meanders through kitchens of the south of France (Oloron St Marie, Conques, Arles) sharing recipes with country cooks and restaurant chefs.
Having walked the Chemin St Jacques and the Camino (nine times to Santiago) I marvel at the clarity of her close-up photographs of frescos, vaulted ceilings and statues that most of us only glimpse in the gloom of the great cathedrals.
I can identify with the authors' own emotional journey and admire her return to the soil giving up an illustrious career in publishing. She obviously loved compiling this book and I am so pleased she has shared it with like-minded pilgrims like me!

I have an interest in pilgrims trails - and a foodie tome on one seemed like a bargain. I picked it up reduced, at my local bookstore for $30, and have been so annoyed by it that I have to write a review.
I'm australian, and pretentious australians writing vanity books is something I seem to be coming across more and more. It hurts, because we used to be known as a fairly honest nation.
I have no issues with people writing books to fund their travels if they have something legitimate to share. But when a story is written just to make money because a niche was in the market or whatever - like a hotel, run for the same reason - you can feel the lack of soul.
If you have an interest in the subject, fine - but I have to say it was reduced for a reason, and I wouldn't recommend it to any but the determined.

It's big, it has photos, it has recipes.

A journalist wrote it - however someone with cleaner motives could really do something with this subject in my opinion. To make money, or to showcase your success is not the real reason you write a book.
