Description: To visit Provence is to fall in love not only with its landscapes but also its food. In Provence Harvest, two longtime residents of the legendary area that stretches from the Rhone to the Cote d'Azur take readers on a stunning tour of both the countryside and the cuisine it has inspired. Motivated by the notion that Mediterranean gardens have merged beauty and productivity since the times of Romans, Louisa Jones and Jacques Chibois evoke the delicious bonds that connect the garden with the kitchen.
With stunning photography of both the food and landscapes of Provence, this lush volume of recipes and reminiscences reveals a land imbued with charm and anchored in the heart of family traditions, from the country house to the orchards of the market gardeners.
Louisa Jones's amusing narratives, punctuated with historical and cultural anecdotes, reveal the often ancestral secrets of the places and produce that feed, literally and figuratively, Jacques Chibois's imagination. Michelin two-star chef Chibois offers forty Provencal recipes -- roast partridge with chestnuts and juniper berries, ribbons of warm leeks with truffles, and French toast with roasted apples, to name a few -- along with helpful chef's advice on topics ranging from cooking fish to using flowers in the kitchen. A tribute to the "farm to plate" philosophy, Provence Harvest is an insider's guide to appreciating -- and recreating -- the world-famous cuisine of Provence in your own kitchen.
