Provence is a region known for its vineyards and markets and is a delight for culinary adventurers. Patricia Wells, author of seven French cookbooks, including The Paris Cookbook and Bistro Cooking, has lived in France for twenty years, dividing her time between Paris and Provence. Wells now calls Provence home and The Provence Cookbook is an intimate guide to the culinary pleasures of the region.
With more than 200 recipes and 92 black and white photographs, it evokes the atmosphere, tastes, and sights of this surpassingly lush, bountiful area. Also included are a guide to local markets, profiles of farmers and vendors, visits to Provence's lively vineyards, and recommendations for food shops and purveyors as well as restaurants.
