I'm traveling to the Basque Country in a few months and wanted to understand more about Basque culture, particularly related to food. This book was a perfect fit. It focuses on various tradesmen and women such as fishermen, shepherds etc and describes their ways of living, how they grew up and how times are changing. There is a heavy focus on what and how they eat and many traditional basque recipes are included. A very pleasant read, which made me very hungry and very excited about my holiday.
