Reports from the Heart of France

  • Each Letter revolves around the daily lifestyle of people in a small French village a thousand years old. Luckily, things haven't changed much over the centuries when it comes to food, wine, and good living.

  • Each Letter often includes at least one recipe provided by the villagers themselves. Why are there more healthy men and women over eighty in the village than in most similar places in the world? Maybe it's the water. Or could it be the food and wine? Decide for yourself.
