Encore Provence - A Book By Peter Mayle
In his most delightful foray into the wonders of Proven√ßal life, Peter Mayle returns to France and puts behind him cholesterol worries, shopping by phone, California wines, and other concerns that plagued him after too much time away.
In Encore Provence, Mayle gives us a glimpse into the secrets of the truffle trade, a parfumerie lesson on the delicacies of scent, an exploration of the genetic effects of 2,000 years of foie gras, and a small-town murder mystery that reads like a best fiction novel. Here, too, are Mayle's latest tips on where to find the best honey, cheese, or chambre d'h√¨te the region has to offer. Lyric, insightful, sparkling with detail, Encore Provence takes¬†us a land where the smell of thyme in the fields or the glory of a leisurely lunch is no less than inspiring.
