The book has nice pictures and narrative about how the author spent her time in Provence, shared meals with friends and family and what was brought to the table. The book is more about the experience of having and sharing lunch than the reciepes. The recipes are not exactely matched to the food pictured. Also some of the food pictured have no recipes provided. A little frustrating since I was looking mostly for lunch recipes and not so much description about the region and style of lunch.

I must admit that I was predisposed to like this book even before opening it. Not only do I recognise Provence to be the most beautiful spot in the galaxy but I have been a deliciously satisfied patron of the author's restaurant for decades.

The book largely met my expectations. The photographs of the food and the enchanting Provençal landscapes are indeed beautiful and the recipes most savoury. However, in one sense, I found the work somewhat disappointing. The photographs do not adequately portray the quiet majesty and magic of Provence and the recipes do not do full justice to the restaurant that Jean-André Charial inherited from his remarkable grandfather, Raymond Thuilier. Finally, much space is wasted by full page quotes from the author, most of which seem ridiculously trivial.

These complaints apart, this is still a very lovely book that will provide much pleasure and inspiration.

The pictures are gorgeous and it really gives you a sense of the lifestyle in Provence. More than a cookbook, this is an advertisement for living in Provence. I want to eat everything pictured in this book. Make it...maybe not. I don't feel the average home cook is going to go out of her way for some of the ingredients. If what you want is a lovely book on Provence, this is it. I just don't know about it as a cookbook.

It is a wonderful read, plus some amazing recipes. A wonderful way to lose yourself on a cold, rainy day!
