New Book: My Culinary Journey Food and Fetes Of Provence


I just got the advance copies of my new book, due out next month.

It’s an extension of my memoir A Pig in Provence, with photos of the landscapes, markets, and people, including family photos (including one of the Pig, Lucretia), recipes, and seven essays on various fetes and festivals of Provence, such as truffle fetes, olive festivals, and lavender fetes.
