“Almost as much guide book as it is cookbook . . . the authors dive into the ingredients unique to Provencal cuisine and the history of the region.” —Kitchn
Provence, the beautiful region that sits at the scenic crossroads of southern France, the Italian Alps, and the Mediterranean, has long been an area of historical import and distinct culture. But above all else, it is known as a producer of some of the finest food and wine France has to offer, with a cuisine that emphasizes healthful ingredients such as olive oil, fresh vegetables, Mediterranean seafood, as well as dry, aromatic rosé.
Provence Food and Wine is one of the only English-language books available on the cuisine, wine, and sights of this stunning Mediterranean enclave on the southern coast of France. Packed with 47 traditional Provencal recipes, all of which emphasize the incredibly popular and healthy Mediterranean diet, Provence Food and Wine also provides detailed information on regional wines, most notably rosé. This is the most famous wine of Provence and has made great strides in the US. Readers will be able to learn about pairing between wine and food, as Viktorija Todorovska and François Millo expertly explain what to look for and where to get these wines outside of Europe.
Full-color photography shows off all of these dishes, as well as the dazzling sights of the region's lush interior, sparkling coastline, and breathtaking vistas. In Provence Food and Wine, Todorovska and Millo “bring the joie de vivre of this region right to your fingertips, capturing its allure with simplicity and heart” (One for the Table).
