Le Sud: Recipes from Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur

The new recipe book from acclaimed author and chef Rebekah Peppler...

For those who feel drawn to the South of France, sun-ripened produce, and the sea, this is the book for you. 100 recipes are created by James Beard Book Award finalist Rebekah Peppler an American Paris-based writer, stylist, and author, inspired by her time escaping the city of lights for quaint towns on the coast.

Photographer Joann Pai documents Rebekah and her friends cooking and exploring le sud, eating on the rocks, cooking in Julian Child's French holiday house, and roaming the local markets...

This book is a charming token of time spent eating one's way through le sud, amongst the lavender fields and the vineyards, the local fromagerie, and the marche. Rebecca approaches the abundance of the south of France with a contemporary lens; technical French recipes are reworked for the home cook, and to read her writing is close to sitting in the same room. Le Sud is friendly, almost flirting, and a true pleasure to read.

"Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur cooking is country cooking and city cooking and seaside cooking and mountain cooking and river cooking. The food is dynamic, it's exciting, it's new and it's old, and needless to say, very worth writing a book about." — Rebekah Peppler
