A journalist's account of the unexpectedly rich life she and her French husband made together after leaving Paris for a small town in southern France...Like the Provencal food and lifestyle it celebrates, Bard's book is one to be savored slowly and with care. Delectable reading.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
Always on the charming side of irreverent and an engaging narrator, Bard does a lot more than act as a tour guide. She muses on cultural differences, French women...childhood, motherhood, marriage, finding and accepting happiness, and more...Bard's reflections on life and love (of all kinds) are witty, wise, and as thoroughly refreshing as the scent of thyme, truffles, lavender, and lemon verbena that waft by on a Provencal breeze.-- "BookPage"
Author-narrator Elizabeth Bard presents a story that is as light and delicious as a souffle...In a lively, humorous manner Bard recounts how she, a sophisticated journalist, becomes a rural French housewife and mother. Her tone is both self-satisfied and self-deprecating...Listeners can go online for specific recipes, but the cooking descriptions are so sensual that they may never need to actually enter the kitchen.-- "AudioFile"
Charming...Bring[s] the tastes of Provence off the page and onto your table.-- "Woman's Day"
Elizabeth Bard is as excellent a narrator as she is a writer. [In] this memoir...A charming experience for anyone seeking information about France; those in love with France may want to listen more than once, as I did. And of course the recipes are mouth wateringly tasty.-- "SoundCommentary.com, Editor's Pick of the Month"
The kind of adventure that makes you long for a fantasy of your own.-- "Bookreporter.com"
This memoir...is a treat.-- "People"
A delicious journey through La Belle France...funny, insightful, wicked and wise, and the cherry on top are the delicious recipes.-- "Jamie Cat Callan, author of French Women Don't Sleep Alone"
A journey to the true heart and soul of living 'la vie francaise.' Warm, thoughtful, and beautiful--a memoir to be savored one delicious chapter (and recipe) at a time. From truffle hunting to harvesting saffron, readers will discover that there is way more to France than just Paris. The simple things in life-love and cooking with love-make every struggle and adjustment worth it. Bon app!-- "Samantha Verant, author of Seven Letters from Paris"
Once again, Elizabeth Bard welcomes us into a fantasy-this time, family life in a charming old house in the south of France. With its sharing of stories and recipes, Picnic in Provence is a friendship that deepens with every page.-- "Suzan Colon, author of Cherries in Winter" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
