Description: Olives and their fruity green oils. Abundant garlic. Piquant goat cheese. The catch of the day. Sun-ripened tomatoes and figs and lemons and eggplants and herbs -- the palette of Provence is irresistible, and with Sarah Leah Chase's recipes, cooking the dishes at home is as pleasurable as eating them abroad.
A gifted cook and writer, Sarah distills the tastes of her travels into dozens of seductive dishes, each bearing the intense flavors and combinations that are her culinary signature. Here are lusty, garlicky spreads and sauces -- Mortar and Pestle Aioli, Fennel Anchoiade, a trilogy of tapenades; main-dish soups, like the silky Mussel and Monkfish Bourride; Provencal pastas, pizzas, and a festive Crespeou omelet; a celebration of spring lamb; a Chopped Salade Nicoise, Roasted Ratatouille, and other tempting market-day improvisations; and ten luscious sweets, from fruit-laden clafoutis to a chocolate, orange, and pine-nut tart.
Celebrating place as well as food, Pedaling Through Provence includes anecdotes of two-wheel travel, detours into wine lore, and asides on inns and restaurants.
