A Cooks Year in a Welsh Farmhouse by Elisabeth Luard

In an old farmhouse on the slopes of a mountain lying between Tregaron and Aberystwyth, Elisabeth Luard brings the produce of the land into her kitchen and turns it into delicious food. This book is her response to the changes she sees in her garden and the surrounding countryside throughout the seasons, with distinctive recipes at the end of each months chapter. It is the story of a year spent planting and picking in the garden, roaming the countryside with her grandchildren and introducing them to the pleasures of rural living.

Elisabeths cooking is rooted in the culture of the Mediterranean where she once lived, as well as being inspired by traditional Welsh recipes and by her own garden. In winter she stirs up warming dishes like Spanish biscocho or Welsh winter cawl; in the spring she waits until the first mayflower comes to bloom before planting lettuces, mangetouts and broad beans in her garden. She relies on locally sourced meat for dishes like Partridges with baby onions and cinnamon in red wine, Rabbit with tagliatelle, cream and mustard or Ceps with potatoes and bacon, and rakes the countryside for ingredients like fruit for Hedgerow jelly, nettles for soup, elderflowers for cordial, cake or even fritters.

With full colour photography by Clare Richardson that perfectly captures the sense of life in the Welsh countryside, this is a unique and beautiful book.

The tone is set, in a sense, by the first picture, before you come to any text at all. We move on to images of wild strawberries on a hand-painted plate and a handful of meadowsweet. Then comes the dedication:. I keep this recipe to hand against the day someone offers me a brace or two of the pests as it sounds quite delicious and, in a certain way, virtuous. Baked beans with parsley, garlic and lemon are like no other baked beans blond and tangy , the Welsh pot-au-feu called cawl is a gloriously earthy Springtime feast in a bowl, Carribean pepperpot is a vegetable symphony with a sweet, tangy, spicy difference, cheesey tomato-rice croquettes are a seductive take on arancini , ceps with potatoes and bacon are even more delicious than they sound and steamed chocolate cake is a revelation. That is the merest amuse bouche.

Introduced by Malcolm Jolley , a regular visitor to Hay. We holiday there every summer with our kids. I mentioned this to Elisabeth Luard when I conducted an interview by phone for Good Food Revolution , and procured an invitation to meet in person. I brought Apple along as my navigator, since my experience of driving on the left side of the road is slight and requires more concentration than I can spare paying attention to things like road signs — never mind maps. This creates its own special kind of driver terror as one negotiates in reverse between a sheer cliff one side and the jagged wall of rock outcroppings on the other. After a slow journey over the mountains, dodging the occasional errant sheep, our arrival was delayed by a good hour of getting and remaining lost in the hills around Ystrad Meurig. Elisabeth and her late husband, the novelist Nicholas Luard, inherited the, house in from his aunt, Monica Rawlins.
