Laura Hinton revisits my multi-media book, Bi-Valve:  Vulvic Space/Vulvic Knowledge after visiting Pierre & me in my Pyrenean stomping grounds. This exchange articulates important  & useful aspects of Bi-Valve.

Infinite Views

August 15th, 2011 · 12 Comments

This summer has been very wet & overcast in the Pyrenees. I love being here no matter if it rains or shines, but some hikes require clear skies to be able to experience the 360 degree panoramic view of the Pyreneen mountain range. My friends Lori & Tom were visiting from Ithaca for a week, […]

Méchoui or Whole Lamb on a Spit

July 30th, 2011 · 2 Comments

Cooking on a spit was the theme of Pierre’s 65th birthday. After the cake on the spit (see previous blog here),  voilà the lamb on the spit a.k.a méchoui! According to the Robert historique de la langue Française the origin of the word méchoui is: “Borrowed (1912) from the Arabic maghrebien mešwi “roasted, grilled; lamb roasted […]

My Montanha & My Soup

November 11th, 2010 · 3 Comments

I arrived Monday afternoon in Bourg d’Oueil after a long but pleasant trip. My Pyrenean home is closer to Spain than to Paris and I am not kidding: it takes 15 minutes by car to reach the Spanish border and about 8 hours to reach Paris!  My travels began Sunday at 1:30 p.m. from our […]

Duck Hearts, Trouts, Kanoon & More

August 2nd, 2009 · 6 Comments

A few years back Pierre and I bought a kanoon — from the arabic:  قانون, kanoûn,  qanoûn or kanun— at a Luchon street fair. It is a North African clay brasero for cooking with charcoal. It makes great tagines and it is very convenient when we have no time to make a big fire in […]

Bourg d’Oueil 2009

July 29th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Bourg d’Oueil is a very small village in the central Pyrenees where I escape to every time I can. It is located in the secluded valley of Oueil, 10 miles from Luchon —where I was born and raised— at 4600 feet high. Today the village counts about 10 full time residents. There is one good […]

Bourg d’Oueil & Show

August 6th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Time flies in the Pyrenees. I have been here for a week and quite busy getting ready for our Sunday performance (see poster below). Still, I took the time to hike to my favorite spot: my name sake “la peira hitta” or the raised stone and by extension Peyrafitte! We also had a excellent family […]
