Is Gascony the Most Delicious Corner of France?

“Gascony is not merely distinct from Provence and the Côte d’Azur. It is, in my estimation, better”

“Also — interesting fact — the humans who do live there live a long time”

“Gascon cooking…. is a cuisine best eased into…”

“Gascony is fundamentally a rural place, and to imbibe its true essence you have to leave the towns behind and venture deep into the countryside…… Such excursions are in my opinion the best possible way to work up your appetite.”
