Provence is uniquely blessed with natural beauty as well as some of the world's most appealing foods and liveliest wines Wells's culinary skills have transformed the signature ingredients of this quintessential French countryside into recipes so satisfying and so exciting that they will instantly become part of your daily repertoire.

Here are over 175 recipes from Wells's farmhouse kitchen, including whole chapters on salads, vegetables, pasta, and bread There are simple but imaginative "palate openers," such as Tuna Tapenade and Curried Zucchini Blossoms, and soul-satisfying soups, with such delights as Monkfish Bouillabaisse with Aroli, Wells's own brilliant interpretation of a Provencal classic. When it comes to meat and poultry, Wells offers earthy daubes, the slow-simmered stews so beloved by the French, and such melt-in-your-mouth delicacies as Butter-Roasted Herbed Chicken You will savor Wells's fish and shellfish creations with recipes like Seared Pancetta-Wrapped Cod. And no meal would be complete without a delight from the treasure trove of desserts here, including Cherry-Almond Tart and Winemaker's Grape Cake.

  • By Wendelly on 24 February 2014

    After a lovely dinner at a friends house I bought this book to have the same recipe. Unfortunately, I can't get most of the ingredients that are available in the lovely markets in Provence. And for those recipes where the ingredients might be less important, the work involved is not my style.This book might be great for some but when I'm looking for something to make I have never found anything here. Maybe in the summer, although I've had it for more than a year now.

    I bought this book when it was first published and am returning to Amazon today to buy another copy --- most of the pages are stuck together from YEARS of cooking with it. Every single section has wonderful recipes that are simple to prepare with ingredients you can find anywhere -- and the result is always delicious and beautifully presented. I reach for this book more often than Joy or Julia Child, it's that much of a standard in our house !!!

    For anyone who enjoys preparing and eating great tasting food Patricia Wells' book will provide hours of enjoyment and satisfaction. But it's full of so much more than recipes. The reader is drawn instantly into the beautiful world of Provence, its tastes, its smells, its culture and its history. A friend of mine had lent me her copy, but after having read just half a page I knew I had to order my own, plus a spare for my best friend!
