"You can almost smell the lavender as you follow Brennan's love affair with the province that became her second home and shaped [her] culinary persona. Brennan is a talented storyteller." -- San Francisco Chronicle
Amid the quirks and charms of the French countryside, Georgeanne Brennan began her life in Provence with the not-so-simple task of tracking down a herd of goats and the lost recipe for making cheese from their milk. From odd out-of-towner to truffle hunter and community feaster, from novice fromagère
to celebrated chef and cookbook author, she learned the traditional ways of one small village-- savoring the richness of food, nature and la vie provençale
"Fascinating... Brennan revels equally in the preparation and consumption of the regional cuisine? You can almost hear her lips smacking." The New York Times Book Review
"Georgeanne Brennan's romance with Provence continues to deepen, and the result of her long residence there is an intimacy with local people, food, and folkways. I would love to pull up a chair to her table." -- Frances Mayes, author of Under the Tuscan Sun GEORGEANNE BRENNAN
is the author of numerous cooking and gardening books, and the recipient of the James Beard Foundation Award and the IACP/Julie Child Cookbook Award for her writing. She lives in northern California and Provence, where she has a seasonal cooking school.
