A Food Lover’s Pilgrimage along the Camino to Santiago de Compostela (soft cover) (out of stock)
This handsome soft cover edition has all the content of the original hardback edition but offers an ideal lighter-weight option for travel, bedtime reading or shipping as a gift.
A thousand-year-old pilgrimage route and food traditions stretching back de toda la vida – since forever. These are what Dee Nolan sets out to experience on her first pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela – through some of the rich farming lands of southern France and on the 800 kilometre camino across northern Spain, green Spain. This joyful book tells the story of Dee’s camino, of the pilgrimage itself and of the food traditions that sustain us all. Following the route of those first pilgrims, Dee meets wise cooks and farmers who are finding that the future lies in the past. And she realises why, in our secular age, we are so captivated by this medieval Christian pilgrimage.
Dee’s own emotional journey along the Way of St James – el camino de Santiago – takes her back to the very heart of things: why we should care about what we eat and how it is produced, why we need escape valves like the pilgrimage in our busy modern lives, and why, back home in Australia, she has found herself, after a long career in publishing, back on her grandfather’s farm and connecting with the soil.
With stunning original photography by Earl Carter, this award-winning book comes complete with a detailed map, advice on planning a Santiago pilgrimage, a recommended reading list and helpful addresses.
