The Good Life in Gascony

Gascony is summed up this way in the NYT

Gascony — unlike Paris or the Loire Valley, say — is not a popular destination for bucket-listers seeking grand chateaus, opulent palaces and soaring basilicas. The region’s patrimonial treasures are often tucked out of sight, as if waiting to be given their moment.

We are talking about rural pleasures. And perhaps, for me anyway, the most appealing might be the duck fat. One gets that way when trying to shed a few pounds.

But if you are in the mood for a nice travel piece to enjoy over coffee, this will do the trick!
