Praise for PICNIC IN PROVENCE
"This charming follow-up to the author's bestselling Lunch in Paris....bring[s] the tastes of Provence off the page and onto your table." --Woman's Day
"Like the Provençal food and lifestyle it celebrates, Bard's book is one to be savored slowly and with care. Delectable reading." --Kirkus Reviews
"Funny, sassy, and bittersweet: a heart-warming story with a delightful foodie twist. After all, who wouldn't want to run away, marry a Frenchman, and open an 'adventurous ice cream' store in a medieval Provençal village?" --Karen Le Billon, author of French Kids Eat Everything
"I was entranced by PICNIC IN PROVENCE from Elizabeth Bard's very first encounter with spring asparagus in the French countryside. Her tale of delicious adventure left me drooling-and her sensitive thoughts on marriage and motherhood were like a heartfelt conversation with a true friend. A delightful book, filled with humor, heart, and the heady scent of lavender." --Ann Mah, author of Mastering the Art of French Eating
"I love Elizabeth's brave funny forays into French life." --Diane Johnson, author of Le Divorce
"A delicious journey through La Belle France...funny, insightful, wicked and wise, and the cherry on top is the delicious recipes." --Jamie Cat Callan, author of French Women Don't Sleep Alone
"Talk about the sweet life: Elizabeth Bard's new chapter is filled with love, parenthood and her very own ice cream shop, and she graciously shares the journey with a salty swirl of intelligence and humor." --Amy Thomas, author of Paris, My Sweet
"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 Colón, author of Cherries in Winter
"With funny, sharp, and insightful writing, not to mention a collection of delectable recipes, Bard reminds us what is important and that nothing's perfect." --Michelle Gable, author of A Paris Apartment
"A journey to the true heart and soul of living 'la vie française.' 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 Vérant, author of Seven Letters from Paris
"This book takes delightful twists and turns. Not unlike the winding roads of Provence. Magnifique!" --Janice MacLeod, author of Paris Letters

It was written I the same fun way that LIP was, complete with delicious-sounding recipes (I love how she tells a wonderful story surrounding food then shares the recipe), but this book mostly takes place after they move to a tiny village in provence and their quest to adjust and fit into village life.
One day, Elizabeth and Gwendyl get the idea to become business owners… of an ice cream shop! They spend months and month testing recipes and researching equipment. They open with great success and just announced the opening of another location in Paris!
Elizabeth also shares with us her struggle connecting with motherhood and with her son, Alexandre. It is a heart-breaking story but one that ends well.
