Self-Proclaimed Nomad Finds Home in the Dordogne of Southwestern France
"Café Oc" Delights with Its Sumptuous Descriptions of Food, Architecture, Language, and Life in Sarlat
By: Shanti Arts
Café Oc: A Nomad's Tales of Magic, Mystery, and Finding Home in the Dordogne of Southwestern France is a travel narrative and memoir; accompanied by photographs taken by the author, it is also a pictorial record of places, people, and events. Café Oc will delight readers with its tantalizing descriptions of French foods and wines, walks through the countryside, visits to the prehistoric painted and engraved caves, and the warm and welcoming people in the Dordogne region of France. From chocolate pastries, truffles, and foie gras, to donkeys, dogs, and cats, to cherished friendships with Sarladais, Bahrami's experiences reveal the valued traditions and uniqueness of the region. Over time and several lengthy visits, Bahrami found a surprising desire to settle down, to leave her "tent poles anchored in place to that precious earth."

She is widely published in travel, food and wine, outdoors and adventure, spiritual, and cross-cultural topics, and she has lived and traveled among the diverse cultures of Europe, the circum-Mediterranean, and the Middle East, as well as across North America.
