Lynn Deasy :Stories from Rural Life in Southern France

The blog explores some of the lesser known things about living in Southern France, from learning to adapt to a new cuisine to heating with wood to living in a 600 year old house. Published every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, it examines the oddities of French provincial living from an outsider’s point of view through a series of adventures that provide more than a fair share of frustration, education, admiration, and blisters…. yes, lots and lots of blisters. The blog has a few series, such as "Pleasures of the Seasons", which explores something new I've learned about living with the seasons; "Monday's Leftovers", which recaps the traditions of a typical French Sunday lunch, and "Cheese" which highlights a lesser known French cheese each month.

  • About me: I'm a Chicago transplant who found myself moving to Southern France without really knowing the language. I met my husband, Christophe, in a small mountain village in the middle of the Pyrenees Mountains, population: 21. We live in a 600 year old house, heat by wood, and have an enormous vegetable garden. We're thinking of expanding it still with saffron. We always have projects going on, some that work and some that well, still need work. We both enjoy cooking and have had some cross culinary collisions in the kitchen, but so far, no one has gotten hurt.
