We came together in a European project to explore places in Europe and found ourselves exploring ecology, history, economy, culture, politics, language and community. In the process we discovered each other, as well as ways of working that built bridges across boundaries and opened up the worlds of our places to share with travellers passing by.
The guide contains a selection of places from France, Greece, Italy and Wales, of course described in all these languages and English.
We chose places a little distance away from the flood of tourists, places we love.
This recipe book is an international delight!
It was born out of a wish to ensure the continuation of traditional cooking and a need to find new ways to collect and record traditional knowledge. To achieve these aims each of the participating countries set up four cooking groups in their regions. We made friends across the generations and across borders and got to understand the idea of Europe a little better.
