Fed up with the hustle and bustle of city life, Allyson Gofton packed up all of her things, said 'au revoir' and moved her family to France for a year of croissants, camembert, country markets, leisurely lunches and fruity wines.
Allyson lived in a charming character farmhouse in the small but picturesque village of Caixon in the south-west of France, near the feet of the breathtaking Pyrenees. My Year in France: Recipes and tales from a Gascon farmhouse features Allyson's best French-inspired recipes, all of which are ideal for the home cook and use readily accessible ingredients.
But this is more than just a cookbook. It follows Allyson on her adventure as she savours the food, people and places around her. This is Allyson's very personal account of the highs and lows of living her dream by experiencing life in a foreign country.
