MY CULINARY JOURNEY by Georgeanne Brennan

In this evocatively entwined memoir and cookbook, Georgeanne Brennan (recipient of a James Beard Award, among other culinary honors) writes in rich detail about the food, people, and festivals (or fêtes) of Provence that have inspired her life long love of the region, where she still has a home.

Tales of the early days of her young California family, living in France with her husband and children, raising goats and making cheese (some from her memoir A Pig in Provence) are now accompanied here by forty of her favorite recipes, pages of lush photographs, and intimate descriptions of more than a half dozen of Provence’s celebratory fêtes: from the Feast of the Fishermen to the Lavender Festival, the Gypsy Fête and more.

Readers will find themselves immersed in stories of long summer meals, the trials of a novice goat cheese maker, and the joy of discovering age-old traditions. This memoir weaves together personal stories of friendship, cooking and living in the Provençal way, and will whet the appetite of food lovers, travelers and anyone who dreams of packing their bags and starting a new life.
