Roti de Porc avec Pommes et Noix

This is my own autumn version of a French classic. After the children of the Quercy have returned from their weekend walnuting expeditions this is a delicious way to use them. Apples come from the bottom of the garden, or the cheap little ones sold in the markets for just a few centimes, are an excellent alternative. At this time of year the Reinettes are in season. Reine des Reinettes are pretty easily available in France. In England try Orleans Reinette if you can find them. If you can’t, use another variety this year and invest in a little bare-rooted tree! You’ll never regret it. Read More »

However if you come a little inland you’ll find that most regions of France have their own summer speciality. Some, like the Niçoise, can be found on restaurant menus all year round. Quercynoise is one of those select few. Absolutely local, totally delicious and just as welcome in the winter as an hors d’oeuvre, as during the summer as a lunch dish.
