A Table in the Tarn

I did get the book today from Amazon. So far I have only read it but I find it very interesting. The story, pictures and how they go from looking for a B and B to buying and giving themselfs 2 years to get it up and running. Some of the recipes I find interesting are roquefort broiche and walnut rolls just to start with. There are several more I want to try.

What are your thoughts on the book.

Thank you for the spelling correction. Sometimes my fingers get the better for me.

Roquefort is a type of cheese similar to bleu cheese (blue cheese).  I'm guessing "broiche" is a typo and it should be "brioche", which is a type of bread (quite rich compared to your average bread--more yolks and butter).

Dave, thank you, what a interesting article! I didn't know it was for sale, boy if I had the money I would jump on it. I must say, a lot of the recipes I do want to try.

We live pretty close to this 'hotel' and can vouch for the quality of the foos. We've never stayed as its so close.

You might want to explore this link for a nice write up.

No problema. I do it all the time! (along with more embarrassing typos)

Have you made any of the recipes, yet? I read the article Dave linked to, and I'm now intrigued. I really shouldn't buy books right now, so I will have to bake/cook vicariously through others!

(BTW, you wouldn't care to PM me your caramel pound cake recipe, would you? I'm on the lookout for the perfect recipe!)

I'm more then happy to PM you the recipe for caramel pound cake but right now I'm in Seattle and I get back next Wednesday I will do it then.

I haven't made anything yet. The read is very interesting and a lot of the recipes sound really good. I can't wait to try them.

I sent you a PM this morning with the Caramel Pound Cake link. I'm sorry for the delay, I just wanted to make sure you got it. I don't always do things right.

      Does anyone have any thoughts about Alice Waters' new "40 Years of Chez Panisse"? Not a recipe cookbook - more of a memoir/history/picture book.

      What would you like to be included in a cookbook you classify as a "good cookbook"?

      Other than the three written by Michael Ruhlman, which I have read and loved, what other books are out there that are about cooking, but not cookbooks?

      I just received a copy of "The Cook's Book - Concise Edition" edited by Jill Norman, and now I'm curious, what's the difference to the full edition? Supposedly it has 648 pages compared to 496 in this edition, and it appears to be much larger in size if the info on us.dk.com is correct. Other than that I can't find any info what the difference might be. It's a neat book with lots of photos about techniques etc, and lots of recipes. As with any DK book production values are high.
      If the contents are the same, I'm happy with the smaller version, but I'd really like to know what I might be missing on those 150 or so pages. If it's just filler, I don't care. If it's some fantastic recipes, I do care....
      Anybody here know both editions? Google was so far of no help. Lots of the full edition are to be had used as well, I'd be happy giving this one as a gift and ordering the full edition, if it's worth it.
      Thanks!

      Say you were rounded up with a group of folks and either had a skill to offer in exchange for a comfy room and some other niceties or were sent off to a slag heap to toil away in the hot sun every day for 16 hours, what 3 books would you want to take with you to enable you to cook and bake such fabulous foodstuffs that your kidnappers would keep you over some poor schlub who could cook only beans and rice and the occasional dry biscuit?
