A fresh and beautiful photographic celebration of romantic Provence, featuring thirty-five Mediterranean lunchtime recipes from a Michelin three-star chef. Lunch in Provence is a richly evocative blend of photographs, recipes, and literary and historical citations inspired by the beauty and unparalleled culinary tradition of Provence. Best-selling author and photographer Rachael McKenna trains her lens on the landscape, people, and food of one of the world&;s most beloved travel destinations. Thirty-five recipes from chef Jean-André Charial feature classic Provençal recipes alongside modern offerings from his award-winning restaurant Oustau de Baumanière. From fortified medieval villages perched atop a mountain to wide sweeps of dappled waves below, from tidy rows of lavender and grapevines to pyramids of fresh produce and spices in the market, from flaky grilled sea bass with fresh ratatouille to racks of lamb in an herb crust with crisp asparagus, and from hazelnut clafoutis with cherries and raspberries to lemon tarts, all the sights and delights of Provence are extolled in their finest sun-soaked glory. Renowned food critic, author, and cooking-school chef Patricia Wells offers a very personal introduction drawn from years of visiting and living in Provence, where she revels in the fresh ingredients, dramatically beautiful landscape, lively local characters, and enviable languorous lifestyle.
