This book is a nice, cute, coffee-table book. It has lovely pictures, text in a font which is difficult to read but looks handwritten, and not much content.
I had hoped to get some significant culinary info for an upcoming trip to Provence, but found this book long on looks and cutesy text but with frustratingly little information. Much better for those trying to figure out how to buy/eat there is "Markets of Provence" and, believe it or not, the Peter Mayle books.
So if you want a nice coffee table book with the name of Mr. Ducasse on the cover, buy it. If you want useful info for planning the culinary part of your trip to Provence (and food in Provence is pretty close to heaven, people), choose another book.

As a person who loves Provence I find this book to be a true find! Who cares if you like to cook! The pictures alone will make you want to jump on a plane. The "Stopping Along the Way" section in the back is a superb travel/eating/drinking guide.
Well worth buying whether you have been to Provence many times or can't wait to go!

What a great book! I felt like I was seeing Provence from my living room, I could smell the flowers, taste the olive oil, and see all the beautiful gardens. I now feel like I can go to Provence, not as a tourist but as an insider. On top of all the gorgeous pictures and delightful text, Alain Ducasse shares all his secrets and recipes from his favorite region of the world. You'll be thrilled with this book!
