The Aveyron is widely known for its Roquefort cheese. The special ingredient that gives Roquefort it’s distinctive character is found in the natural molds of the local limestone caves. Turn to Chapter 6 of Water Paper Stone to read about how Judy succeeds in making “almost-Roquefort” using soy milk clotted with Tibetan mushrooms.

We can almost smell the basil from here. The basil and lemons pictured here came from Judy and Mike O’Shea’s garden at the mill. Interested in how they utilized all this basil? Visit water-paper-stone.com for more information.

Mary-Rose, Hayes, author of “What She Had To Do,” on Judy O’Shea’s self-published book:

“Water Paper Stone: Letters from a Mill in France is an entirely satisfying French feast of a book, essential fare for anyone who has contemplated a mid-life adventure in another country and culture. The beautifully written, hilarious, and sometimes heart-wrenching details of the O’Sheas’ seventeen years in Southwest France—who they met, what they ate, how they achieved the daunting renovation of an ancient mill and created art along the way—are related both in journal entries and delightful but unsparing letters to Judy O’Shea’s sister back home in the States.”

“This engaging and multilayered book is recommended to anyone who has ever dreamed of living in France, restoring an old building, and/or pursuing the life of an artist. Oh, and delving into the mysteries of French cuisine by cooking and eating wonderful food, another delicious thread that winds through this real-life narrative.”
- Carolyn Miller, poet, on Judy O’Shea’s book Water Paper Stone

My memoir about restoring a French water mill, learning the language, cooking, and making art in France for over 17 years is about to be published.
