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.
Jean Andre Charial is the Executive Chef and proprietor of L'Oustau de Baumaniere one of the finest places to dine in Provence. All of the recipes have been provided by chefs employed in either this establishment or one of the other properties owned by Monsieur Charial.
My main criticism of the book is that it lacks a focus. It is not exactly a book about travel or lifestyle or cooking. The cliched quotes used through out are annoying and I would have liked some more narrative to help understand the locations.
Nevertheless the pictures are lovely and the food looks great.
