Zuni Café celebrates the artistry of Paula Wolfert

by Carolyn Tillie

Paula_arrives_1On Thursday, October 13, 2005, Judy Rodgers and Zuni Café celebrated the release of Ms. Wolfert's completely revised and updated The Cooking of Southwest France.  The original seminal edition, published over 20 years ago, laid the foundation and opened the doors to a regional cuisine then considered exotic. In an era when building your own pizza on store-bought Bobboli crust was considered "cooking Italian," The Cooking of Southwest France introduced concepts of rustic sophistication of French cuisine to an English-speaking public.  In researching and revising her original tome, Paula enlisted the aid of a small group of enthusiastic supporters via the internet to test and retest both old and new recipes.

My Old Moroccan Home by P. Wolfert

"If you see her, say 'hello.'

She might be in Tangier..."


‑Bob Dylan

It has been nineteen years.

On the plane I keep telling myself I'm going back to Tangier to see my old house and garden, find my old house‑keeper, pick up a few new recipes, see a few old friends. The truth is I want to revisit the city which formed my adult life...perhaps finally to get it out of my system. It has been 19 years. Between 1959 and‑ 1976, I did three stints in Tangier. Each time I left, I longed to return; and now I am returning again.

C79d

For me Tangier was always a place of contradictions ‑‑ European and Arab, luxurious and shabby, comfortable and exotic, familiar and mysterious. It was the city where I had lived unhappily with one husband and very happily with another, set up households, raised my children, forged friendships, learned what the Mediterranean life‑style was about and how to live it.

(view of the city from my bedroom window)

It was also the place where I found my vocation as food‑ writer, where I discovered who I really was.
