It is easy to get to the Languedoc. Follow the Rhone south through France, then once you hit the Mediterranean coast, turn right. The mystery is that for generations, people have been getting to the sea and turning left to Provence. This lack of attention means that the Languedoc is France's last undiscovered Mediterranean secret. Now Rupert Wright introduces you to the region's winemakers, oyster farmers, canal people and celebrated inhabitants, living and dead, including Montpellier's dynamic Mayor, Georges Freche, and local matador Juan Bautista. You will learn about the Languedoc's troubled and fascinating history, visit bullfights and boar hunts, and hear about the writers and artists that have lived and travelled in this intriguing land.

Languedoc-Roussillion (not forgetting the Midi-Pyrénées and Aquitaine) are the regions of France most settled by English expatriate colonists. Caroline Conran has spent much time there since the early 1970s and her collection of recipes reflects years of travel, conversation, cooking, eating and drinking. She has shared her knowledge with English readers in a previous book, Under the Sun: Caroline Conran's French Country Cooking, but here she concentrates upon this single region of Languedoc which curls up from the Spanish border, along the Mediterranean coast as far as the Rhône valley. This is not polite France, this is 'in your face' France; it's history buried amidst the Crusades and Cathars, its towns and cities - Nimes, Toulouse, Carcassonne, Narbonne, Perpignan, Montpellier, Beziers - making up a fiercely independent region. Its people are passionate about rugby, about hunting and foraging, with a cuisine of their own, more Southern, simpler, more earthy, and less influenced by the Michelin style of cooking than the rest of France. There will be information on the particular specialities of the pays, such as chestnuts, sweet onions, Bouzigues mussels and oysters (shellfish reared in the Bassin de Thau), salt cod, poufres (baby octopus), charcuterie, salades sauvages (salads of wild plants), the rose coloured garlic of Lautrec, wild asparagus and local mushrooms. There will be descriptions of places where oysters, truffles, chestnuts or calçots - a giant spring onion, eaten roasted on a fire of vine-prunings - are the obsession of everyone in the community. Caroline Conran is a writer with a quiver of successful books in her armoury. From Poor Cook to the Conran Cookbook, to her groundbreaking translations of Michel Guérard and other French chefs.

An unabashed celebration of slow food and authentique living – Languedoc style Ten years ago, Angela Murrills and Peter Matthews began their love affair with the Languedoc. Stretching from the Rhône River in south-central France to the Pyrenees and the Spanish border, it is one of Europe’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 Nîmes; and Carcassonne, Europe’s greatest fortified town. But what really attracted Murrills and Matthews was the locals’ 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. An unabashed celebration of the joys of food and life’s simple pleasures, Hot Sun, Cool Shadow tells the story of the couple’s discovery of the Languedoc, area by area, dish by dish. It includes more than thirty recipes and sixty of Peter Matthews delightful illustrations.
