Overview

A Pig in Provence: Good Food and Simple Pleasures in the South of France by Georgeanne Brennan

From the publisher of Under the Tuscan Sun comes another extraordinary memoir of a woman embarking on a new life—this time in the South of France. Thirty years ago, James Beard Award-winning author Georgeanne Brennan set out to realize the dream of a peaceful, rural existence en Provence. She and her husband, with their young daughter in tow, bought a small farmhouse with a little land, and a few goats and pigs and so began a life-affirming journey. Filled with delicious recipes and local color, this evocative and passionate memoir describes her life cooking and living in the Provenal tradition.

I really enjoyed this book! I would whole-heartedly recommend it for anyone who enjoys reading about food and food preparation, life in Provence, and those who appreciate a really good bottle of wine and an espresso at the closure of a meal.

At first I was disappointed because I thought it was a story with a plot. As I got deeper into it and found myself traveling through french cooking, hunting and gathering, and learning about foods made from scratch and how to identify them and prepare them, I couldn't quit reading. I had a bit of problem in some places since I don't know the french language. If you like to cook or just like great food, it's a great read.

This story is really wonderful to read and to get the recipes too. Wow. It is very interesting to learn of the challenges involved in making a home, purchasing the animals, making the cheese, not to mention collecting mushrooms and herbs. Lovely. Our family loves France and have been there several times to stay with a lovely family in the Naintre area. Their daughter spent a year with us in the US and we have become a family much like this author and some of her neighbors. We have had delightful meals with and adventures together. This book brought much of our French experience back. I can taste the aire of France.
