James Beard Award winning author Georgeanne Brennan shares a lifetime of French farmhouse cooking—combining ingredients from forest, field, sea, and stream—in casual meals for friends and family.

Paired with lovely lifestyle photography, this inspiring cookbook weaves together her personal experience, stories, and tips about how to create a sustainable life—one that celebrates the relationship between the land and the table, and among food, family, and friends—no matter where you reside.
