Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his most delightful foray into the wonders of Proven al life, Peter Mayle returns to France and puts behind him cholesterol worries, shopping by phone, California wines, and other concerns that plagued him after too much time away.

In Encore Provence, Mayle gives us a glimpse into the secrets of the truffle trade, a parfumerie lesson on the delicacies of scent, an exploration of the genetic effects of 2,000 years of foie gras, and a small-town murder mystery that reads like the best fiction. Here, too, are Mayle's latest tips on where to find the best honey, cheese, or chambre d'hite the region has to offer. Lyric, insightful, sparkling with detail, Encore Provence brings us a land where the smell of thyme in the fields or the glory of a leisurely lunch is no less than inspiring.

Synopsis:

This is a continuation of Peter Mayle's account of an Englishman's life abroad. He tells of a school for noses in Haute Provence, the mysterious death of an oversexed butcher, the quest for the finest bouillabaisse and an assortment of characters from bars and boules courts.

Synopsis:

A third helping of French country life from the writer of the "A Year In Provence" and "Toujours Provence", who goes in search of the finest bouillabaisse, investigates the mysterious death of an oversexed butcher and goes to a school for noses.
