A Pig in Provence: Good Food and Simple Pleasures in the South of Franceby Georgeanne Brennan
Synopses & Reviews
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.
"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
"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
Thirty years ago, this award-winning author and her family set out to realize the dream of a peaceful, rural existence. This evocative and passionate memoir — filled with delicious recipes and local color — describes her life cooking and living in the South of France.
