Ste. Colombe-en-Bruilhois, Lot-et-Garonne, Gascony, France
I learned to cook from the ground up in Gascony—from the potager, orchard, river, and field. Barns and silos join Michelin-starred restaurants as treasured culinary destinations. The weekly umbrella-ed gatherings huddled on Saturday mornings, rain or shine, are my ‘meet’ market and a source of some of the best cooks in France, the farmers and artisan food producers. My Kitchen-at-Camont is a beacon of good cooking in a long hungry village.
