Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

A poetic love song to Provence. Sarah Leah Chase's approach is accessible and enthusiastic, as she offers us a full-flavored, technicolor tapestry of all that this blessed land has to offer.(Patricia Wells, author of The Food Lover's Guide to France and Bistro Cooking)

PEDALING THROUGH PROVENCE is a food lover's dream, a marriage of sun-blessed cuisine and Mediterranean charms. And for imaginative cookbook author Sarah Leah Chase, it is a source of culinary magic, from the fragrant fields of wild herbs that she celebrates in Roast Rack of Lamb with Lavender Honey to the market-day memories simmered into a Soupe au Pistou. PEDALING THROUGH PROVENCE is her personal collection of mor ethan 95 Provencal recipes, inspired by countryside travels a bicyclette.

This book will absorb you into the culture, the setting, and the food, in a way that you will feel you were there yourself. Sarah Leah Chase is great at giving proper cooking tips to ensure success with her recipes. I've tried many myself, and I've loved them all so far. It's not only pleasant to follow her clear instructions, but it's a learning experience in itself. Every recipe is introduced with a specific time and place of her life experienced in Southern France. I have learned about the culture, the people, the "paysage". Every time I finish one of her recipes, I feel like marking the place on my "to visit" vacation list. You will fall in love, not only with the food, but with its quality of a rounded learning experience as well.

What a beautiful book, for beautiful cuisine. I have tried many of the recipes, and although they taste good, I have found a few 'glitches' -- for instance, everything sticks to the pan, or the recipe calls for ingredients but then the directions never say when to use them!
I am now living in Maussane - one of the towns mentioned in the book - it is nice to have the names of the restaurants so I can taste first-hand without having to cook!

Bottom line: this is absolutely worth having.
If you look at the food stains on all our cookbooks, this one will have the most food stains on it -- meaning it's the one we refer to the most. The recipes are very provencal, emphasizing fresh ingredients, well matched and well prepared.
But there are some pleasant contrasts to many other provencal cookbooks. Chase doesn't go overboard on obscure meats that you can't easily find in the US (or can't make for finicky dinner guests). Though not in any way designed to be a "health cookbook," the recipes are mostly all just fine when it comes to the health component. Like Jacques Pepin, it's light on saturated fats, but doesn't unnecessarily work to eliminate lovely things like olive oil & butter when needed to make things taste good.
Plus, it's the kind of cookbook that is full of little things that add huge amounts. Example: I have a dozen recipes in other books for Pissaladiere. But in Chase's, she adds a anchoiade spread under the onion topping that makes all the difference, and gets guests asking "What's that flavor in this? It's so good!"
The only time I read the prose (about biking) was when I bought the book. Lovely to read, nice context in which to place a cookbook. But in the end, buy this for the cooking contents.

I have made many of the recipes in this book and have been delighted every time! Her anecdotes bring back my own memories of this lovely area. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.

My boyfriend owns this cookbook and won me with his great cooking... turns out, 90% of his recipes that I love are from this cookbook. Now I am buying my own copy.
