Picnic in Provence
A Memoir with Recipes

The author of the bestselling memoir 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 Lights. 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. 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.

About the Author-
  • Elizabeth Bard is an American journalist and author based in Provence, France. Her first book, Lunch in Paris: A Love Story, with Recipes was a New York Times and international bestseller.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Author/narrator Elizabeth Bard presents a story that is as light and delicious as a soufflé. In this second book about her married life in France, the former New Yorker adapts to French values, customs, and, most importantly, cooking. She and her French husband leave Paris and buy a historic house in Provence. In a lively, humorous manner Bard recounts how she, a sophisticated journalist, becomes a rural French housewife and mother. Her tone is both self-satisfied and self-deprecating. This food memoir/love story ends with the couple setting up an artisanal ice cream company. Listeners can go online for specific recipes, but the cooking descriptions are so sensual that they may never need to actually enter the kitchen. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine
