“Forget the elaborate preparations so often associated with French cuisine. Provence native Craig shows how the simple love of olive oil and garlic, infused in ingredients like eggplant and tomatoes, reduces time in the kitchen to a half hour or less … Color photographs of the south of France, by themselves, beckon; coupled with the 100-plus recipes and Craig’s memorable family stories this collective will rank among reader favorites.” — Booklist

About this book

Provence is the fruit and vegetable garden of France, where much of its most beautiful produce is grown. These ingredients, combined with Provence's unique identity, position, and history have resulted in a cuisine full of heart, balance, and soul–a cuisine that showcases its peoples' reverence for the produce, the changing seasons, and the land.

Caroline Rimbert Craig's maternal family comes from the southern foothills of Mont Ventoux, where the sun beats hard and dry, but aromatic herbs, vines, and fruit trees prosper. This is her guide to cooking the Provenal way, for those who want to eat simply but well, who love to cook dishes that rhyme with the seasons, and who want to recreate the flavors of the Mediterranean at home, wherever that may be.

With stunning color photographs to accompany the recipes, the book is also interspersed with shots of Provence's beautiful landscapes, reflecting the region's rich culinary culture.

“If you love French food and France, this book deserves a place on your kitchen counter but would be equally at home on your coffee table or even your bedside table as a book that will whisk you away to Provence with the turn of a page. A lovely read with classic Provençal recipes and stories.” — eat live travel write
