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 Light. 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. Along the way, challenges abound, from renovating a historic cottage to navigating new motherhood (French style), but Elizabeth meets them with her trademark honesty and humour. 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. PRAISE FOR PICNIC IN PROVENCE 'This book takes delightful twists and turns. Not unlike the winding roads of Provence. Magnifique!' -Janice MacLeod, author of Paris Letters 'Like the Provencal food and lifestyle it celebrates, Bard's book is one to be savored slowly and with care. Delectable reading.' - Kirkus Reviews PRAISE FOR LUNCH IN PARIS 'A memoir and love story wrapped around recipes - what's not to love?' - Daily Telegraph 'this mouth-watering memoir is Bard's romantic recounting of how she met her French husband via a select menu of delights.' - Vogue 'Do you enjoy a dose of delish reality with your love stories? then you'll enjoy this intimate insight into the real-life romance between New Yorker Elizabeth and Frenchman Gwendal ... tres magnifique!' - NW
