Through the centuries, the Dordogne has cherished a tradition of fine cuisine that is framed throughout France, and the region has produced a disproportionate number of France's finest chefs: Brillat-Savarin, Caréme, Escoffier, André Noel and, in our own times, Marcel Boulestin. Moreover, the culinary skills found on the farms and in town households are not far removed from the gastronomic secrets of the finest restaurants. Historical and personal anecdotes abound in this rare book, rich in recipes, and full of insight and observation. Food is discussed at great length, and the recipes special to this part of France symbolize to the people of Perigord the traditional skills and patterns of life, a permanent way of looking at the world and its gifts. James Bentley has a house in the Dordogne, and spends a good part of each year there. His many books include travel guides to the Dordogne, the Loire, and Tuscany, and the Blue Guide to West Germany and Berlin.

Harry series starts off in France, this originally was Red wine & Cavemen, one part; which is now a play as originally intended. There are six parts to this to the first series. Most of the stories are fictional based on my experiences and expanded upon, I was in book selling, I did get put out of business by online, and I renovated an old building in France which came to an abrupt halt as UK tax demands put life on hold for several years. I came to the conclusion that working was actually very expensive and little is achieved by doing so through life. This series and the rest of my writings came into life whilst on a mooring on the Fal River, Cornwall 2015, I was trying to write a story and put it on the internet to attract the attention from a friend who I'd only known the christian name, I'd called 'A message in a bottle', for bottles floated around the world with messages as online goes around the world. The idea of Cavemen & Red Wine had come around ten years before when renovating a building in France in an area surrounded by forests, woods, rivers and many hills, a wild part of France, then one morning it suddenly sprung to life and ten hours later I had beginnings of a tale, so I dropped the other story for a while and managed 30k words with this before returning to the other which became a tomb at around 170k words, I re-wrote it, put it online for 3 months and had zero response so took it off. The instigation of Cavemen to written word gave me the impetus to follow the message book through. Prior to 2015, I'd little more than scratch my signature, and indeed this showed, this Cavemen, Harry series one has been re-written around eight times. Eventually I managed three parts to this by early 2016, bookselling had shown that me that series were needed and one off novels were a rarity to pull off no matter how good the writer is. I followed this up with Pretty Girls set In LA, again three parts, now eight parts in Harry series Seven, again re-written countless times. I followed in early this in early 2016, Cider and Guitars, a mammoth tomb in sixteen parts finished around the time of the Brexit vote. After much thought I decided to link these all together with a central character, called Harry, named after a Chinese restaurant I frequented for take aways on a regular basis and a life saver during the Christmas period where retail took off. I completed this series in August 2017 and totals some 930k words in sixty two episodes all with many re-writes to date. Then I set to task on a different series as Harry had taken me over, producing a teen late teen fiction series , and one off historical fiction novel, which still remains unexplained to me as I've never read any, nor intend to, still I wrote one. Then in 2018 I diversified across the fictional genres with series.

A generation ago, the Ryman family arrived in the Dordogne to follow a dream. To live in France. To make excellent wine in a vineyard of their own. And to have an elegant chateau as a home. Is this not everyone's secret desire? It did not take them long to discover and fall in love with Chateau de la Jaubertie, a beautiful 400 year old country mansion, built from soft golden sandstone and set in the heart of the lush green valley of the Dordogne. Together, the family, Nick Ryman a multi-millionaire from selling his stationery business, his wife Anne, a professional cordonbleu cook, and their three children Hugh, Corinne and Camilla the Rymans embarked on a search for a new life a la francaise. But they had not anticipated the steep learning curve required to deal with the local French people and their customs; nor the passions and rifts that were to erupt within the family. In taking a vineyard producing barely drinkable wine they created the finest wines in Bergerac, thereby beating the French at their own game but the family would never be the same again - the search for their dream almost tore them apart

In this collection of articles, the author paints vignettes and describes happenings from the vantage point of an American observer in what he has dubbed the Golden Triangle in France. The focus is on a fascinating group of persons and personal experiences in a corner of the beautiful Dordogne valley in the northern edge of the Lot that is still relatively unspoiled, and filled with an astounding number of significant places. The entire region throbs with the material reminders of prehistoric, Celtic, Roman, and medieval times, especially with the beauty of well-preserved fourteenth century villages. Above all, it is the portraits of the several protagonists that provide a look at the infinite complexity of individuals and their experiences.
