Alain Ducasse has a grounded obsession, a secret garden, a protected territory–namely, Provence. It's in Provence that he plays around with his ideas and his flavors, and it's Provence that provides him with a place where he can catch his breath. Ducasse is, of course, familiar with all the well-known locations, but in this book he chooses to highlight places off the beaten track: the best markets, wineries, villages, the best terraces to have your aperitif. In each chapter, you will find those addresses and phone numbers for guidance. He even includes many recipes to inspire you in the kitchen. The Provence of Alain Ducasse explores this legendary region, a place full of charm where you can discover something new every day.
Hand-written notes and recipes, beautiful watercolors and color photographs, and oversized format make this a stunning volume.
