h4. From the publisher

As much a book of inspiration as a collection of 250 uncommonly delicious recipes, French Farmhouse Cookbook captures the rustic and richly flavored farmhouse cooking that is the basis of French cuisine and a perennial inspiration of French chefs. 

Susan Herrmann Loomis visited and lived among farmers, cheesemakers, ranchers, and vintners from the Pyrénées to Alsace-Lorraine, from Normandy to Provence. The result is a stunning portrait in recipes, lively essays, and a wealth of tips passed down through generations of cooks. Here are dishes prepared by lifelong cooks, not chefs, intended to satisfy, not impress.
