Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the publisher of Under the Tuscan Sun comes another extraordinary memoir of a woman embarking on a new life — this time in the South of France. Thirty years ago, James Beard Award-winning author Georgeanne Brennan set out to realize the dream of a peaceful, rural existence en Provence. She and her husband, with their young daughter in tow, bought a small farmhouse with a little land, and a few goats and pigs — and so began a life-affirming journey. Filled with delicious recipes and local color, this evocative and passionate memoir describes her life cooking and living in the Provençal tradition — an entrancing tale that will whet the appetite and the spirit — perfect for foodies, Francophiles, or anyone who's dreamed of packing their bags and buying a ticket to the good life.

Review:

"Georgeanne Brennan's captivating memoir reminds me of why I, too, was enchanted by Provence. She beautifully captures the details of living in a place where the culture of the table ties a community together — where everyone knows the butcher and the baker, and everyone depends on the farmers." Alice Waters, owner, Chez Panisse

Review:

"Georgeanne Brennan's romance with Provence continues to deepen, and the result of her long residence there is an intimacy with local people, food, and folkways. I would love to pull up a chair to her table." Frances Mayes, author of Under the Tuscan Sun

Synopsis:
