Lunch in Paris takes us on another delicious journey, this time to the heart of Provence.
In Lunch in Paris, Elizabeth Bard fell in love with a handsome Frenchman and moved to the City of Light. In this mouthwatering follow-up, the couple and their newborn son bid farewell to Paris for rural life in a tiny village in Provence - land of blue skies, lavender fields and peaches that taste like sunshine.
This is the story of how they embarked on a new adventure and became culinary entrepreneurs, starting an artisanal ice cream shop and experimenting with local ingredients like saffron, sheep's milk yogurt and olive oil. Along the way, challenges abound, from renovating a historic cottage to navigating new motherhood (French style), but Elizabeth meets them with her trademark honesty and humour. Full of discoveries, mishaps, feasts, and recipes, Picnic in Provence is about everything that happens after the happily ever after, and reminds us that life, in and out of the kitchen, is a rendezvous with the unexpected.
Elizabeth Bard is an American journalist and author based in Provence, France. Her first book, Lunch in Paris: A Love Story, with Recipes, was an Australian bestseller as well as a New York Times and international hit, and the recipient of the 2010 Gourmand World Cookbook Award for Best First Cookbook (USA).
