Présentation de l'éditeur

<div><p><b>An unabashed celebration of slow food and authentique living &#150; Languedoc style</p><b><p>Ten years ago, Angela Murrills and Peter Matthews began their love affair with the Languedoc. Stretching from the Rh&#244;ne River in south-central France to the Pyrenees and the Spanish border, it is one of Europe&#8217;s oldest and most historic regions. Its wonders include the castles of the Cathars; the Carmargue marshes, home to wild white horses; superb Roman ruins such as the arena at N&#238;mes; and Carcassonne, Europe&#8217;s greatest fortified town.</p><p>But what really attracted Murrills and Matthews was the locals&#8217; love of food and wine. As their trips became longer and the dream of owning their own house took shape, they began to discover another way of living, a slower one based on gastronomic pleasure and the really important things in life: hunting for mushrooms, visits to the market, long lunches and heated debates about the best way to make cassoulet.</p><p>An unabashed celebration of the joys of food and life&#8217;s simple pleasures, <i>Hot Sun, Cool Shadow</i> tells the story of the couple&#8217;s discovery of the Languedoc, area by area, dish by dish. It includes more than thirty recipes and sixty of Peter Matthews delightful illustrations.</p></div>

A great mix of travel, history, food and wine of the Languedoc regions. Well written. Worth reading if you love France and/or thinking of visiting this region.

Not a very interesting book about buying a house in France and cooking meals the ingredients of which you can't find everywhere.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good travel, good food and good history-great reading! 16 août 2006
Par Tim Johnson - Publié sur Amazon.com
For disparate reasons, Diane and I have seen more of Languedoc than any other region of France so it was natural that I would be attracted to this enticing book covering this trinity of ingredients in Murrills' heady book.

The ingredient that binds this wonderful melange of delights together is the interminable hunt for the perfect, at least to them, house. All of the travel throughout the length and breadth of Languedoc-Roussillon and thereby providing the substance, its food and history, is to provide opportunities for the author and her husband to, seemingly, examine every house for sale in the pronvince. The map just before the Prolgue is extremely important to the book because the pot into which these ingredients are mixed is this map showing the many places in Angela's and therefore your journey. With a specific place used as a starting point for each chapter, the book becomes a three demensional map of Languedoc and many of the villages, towns or small cities that she visits in her and her husband's house hunting journey becomes a reason to delve into the history and more importantly the particular food of the area.

My particular interest in the Cathars and their eventual total destruction by the Albigensian Crusade meant that this travel book, more than others, intrigued me. The author visited some of the Cathar sites that I've also visited: Monysegur, Albi and Carcassonne. These places plus a myriad of others that I have not visited constitute the historical backbone of this marvellous book. However, a further ingrdient besides these historical examinations, is the regional food that Murrills exams. She ends each chapter with one of those regional recipes and throughout the preceding chapter, offers traveler descriptions of the foods and acacdotes about its importance and its role in the greater Languedoc community.

This is a wonderful book and deserves attention from lovers of history, food and anacdotal travel.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hot Sun, Cool Shadows 18 novembre 2012

The book is wonderful and gives every detail of the area, almost town by town, wine by wine, dish by dish. There are recipes easy to follow and it makes you just want to be there - in fact I am going next year. Very descriptive and detailed with lots of humour. Could almost smell the food and see the colours. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys cooking, eating and good wine, as well as wandering the French countryside and visiting hillside villages and castles from yesteryear.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent travelogue for foodies. 29 octobre 2014

So enjoyed this book, the more so because i live in the area and grow loads of vegetables, visit the markets and generally am steeped in the life in South West France. Some of the local recipes I already knew but will be trying out some of the others.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 For a first visit or a re-visit. 17 juillet 2014

A delightful book . I am planning my second holiday in the region and this is a lovely read to plan new wanderings and some revisiting.
