In this extraordinary memoir, James Beard Award-winning author, Georgeanne Brennan, takes us on an intimate journey to Provence--the place of her early culinary inspiration--where she writes in lush detail about the food, people and French festivals she celebrated during her lifelong journeys through the region.

As a young woman, she and her husband, with their small children, bought a farmhouse with a little land and some goats, in hopes of realizing the dream of an idyllic existence in the French countryside. Now, these memoires, documented in A Pig in Provence, are accompanied by forty delicious recipes, gorgeous photographs (many are the author's personal photos) and informative, lively text featuring information about seven of her favorite regional French festivals.

In these pages, readers will find rich descriptions of warm summer meals, learning to make goat cheese, discovering regional festivals (or fetes) and more. This evocative and passionate memoir weaves together personal stories of friendship, cooking and living in the Provencal tradition, and will whet the appetite of foodies, travelers and anyone who dreams of packing their bags and taking a delicious romp through the lavender fields and vine-covered hills of Provence.
