With its practical format, this culinary guide presents exquisite regional specialities, first-class restaurants, and selected vineyards. A feast for both the eyes and the palate, this book allows the readers to experience the culture of the region and its typical dishes, which are deeply rooted in the Proven??al landscape. Wandering through the gardens and landscapes of Provence, readers find themselves in a sensual cornucopia of fruits, vegetables, olives, honey, almonds and wine. Play a game of boules or take a midday siesta under the shade of the pine trees, surrounded by the chirping of the crickets. This is Provence. Columns in contrasting colours concisely convey informaA?tion on important topics, such as truffles and fish. Survey maps and a detailed index to recipes and places help readers find their orientation quickly. A compreA?hensive appendix and glossary provide useful addresses for producers of gourmet specialities and delicatessen.
