28 Days in Provence - Shannon Bennett

Paperback.  Very good condition.  2012

In a glorious farmhouse just outside the village of Ménerbes, Shannon immerses himself in the life of Provence. With no recipes from home, his first task is to find old books and learn the history of local dishes. 

Exploring village markets, cooking with local and seasonal produce, learning classic food techniques and soaking up the culture are all part of the daily life of a chef and his family on holiday.  What began as a diary has become a beautiful record of regional food and Shannon’s home cooking, and includes more than 60 original recipes: from slow-cooked duck with honey and thyme to lamb cassoulet with preserved lemons, from artichoke stuffed with ratatouille to figs wrapped in olive oil brioche — all created on the spot to incorporate the fresh ingredients Shannon sources every day.

To round out this luscious feast, the book includes many other tips and treasures, including overviews of the region’s wines, as well as a personal guide to the best restaurants and hotels.   
Shannon and his family’s journey will inspire and delight Francophiles and food lovers alike.
