Elisabeth Luard’s description of a meadow in the Balkans reminded me of these fine fellows on one of my regular cycle routes here in the heart of Europe…

Her description comes from her book Still Life (Bloomsbury, 1998, paperback 2013) – a highly readable travelogue telling the tales of the research beind her monumental work EUROPEAN PEASANT COOKERY, originally published in 1986 and again in paperback by Grub Street in 2007 and covering 25 European countries from the North, South, East and West…

Just another two of the treasures in my Basket of Books 🙂
