Can't Say Enough About Kate Hill

Kate's Home
   On my last trip to France, I had the pleasure of visiting a friend of mine in Gascony, Kate Hill.  She's an American living out her life in France and loving every minute of it.  I envy her.

Kate is a cookbook author and canal barge cooking instructor.  She takes people out on her barge, the Julia Hoyt, and teaches them how to cook.  Her home is a fantasy place that you just want to never leave.

Since this area is known for their duck, I had the pleasure of being at her home on the couple of days that the BBC was filming her for a television show.  It was magical.

We have some of the best duck I have ever had and you just can't beat the atmosphere for having a truly authentic French experience. 

If you are interested in this experience for yourself, please read her book, A Culinary Journey in Gascony by Kate Hill,  It is an enjoyable read and is filled with bits of information, as well as, recipes from the region.
