Full of gorgeous color photos, this is a beautiful as well as helpful book. After the trip, it is wonderful to go through the book again and savor all of the great memories. For the finest produce, cheese and other delights of the South, this book is a must have!
The book commences with a forward by Patricia Wells, the indomitable former food editor of the International Herald Tribune. The style of writing is fashioned for the tourist, struggling with strange French words, and concepts. There are numerous recipes, so that those with their own facilities can enjoy their purchases in delightful consumption. There are other sidebars that explain unique aspects of the country, such as the bread, truffles, Provencal fabrics, pottery, etc. There are several practical appendixes which cover other markets, seasonal specialties, typical foods, with the French explained, useful phrases, a conversion chart, a glossary, a listing of selected restaurants, and a brief suggested reading list.
I've been to the markets in five of these seven towns, have enjoyed them all, and feel that their description in the book captures their spirit accurately. My next to favorite market is the one in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, where I have been innumerable times.Read more ›
