Cuisine of the Sun: Classical French Cooking from Nice and Provenceby Mireille Johnston, Milton Glaser (Illustrator)
More than two hundred regional classics -- from chickpea and sage soup, a hearty country
The North Africans, Phoenicians, and Romans who settled in Southern France imbued this region's cuisine with an exotic, uniquely Mediterranean flavor. Naturally light and lean, the recipes use the freshest of ingredients, enhanced by a striking blend of flavors and seasonings.
More than two hundred regional classics -- from chickpea and sage soup, a hearty country pate, or an authentic salade nicoise, to an inviting variety of meat, seafood, and vegetable dishes -- are authentically transported to the modern American kitchen. Mireille Johnston's local lore brings the rich vegetation, the colors, scents, and sensations of her native Provence to the beginning cook and the experienced chef alike.
