In a glorious farmhouse just outside the village of M nerbes, Shannon immerses himself in the life of Provence. With no recipes from home, his first task is to find old books and learn the history of local dishes. His aim is to re-engage with a culinary tradition that has been such a part of his life, and to nourish and enjoy time with his young family. He invites us to join them all and step inside this beautiful part of France, to grab a glass of C tes du Ventoux and live life like O la fran ais. Exploring village markets, cooking with local and seasonal produce, learning classic food techniques and soaking up the culture are all part of the daily life of a chef and his family on holiday. What began as a diary has become a beautiful record of regional food and Shannon's home cooking, and includes more than 60 original recipes: from slow-cooked duck with honey and thyme to lamb cassoulet with preserved lemons, from artichoke stuffed with ratatouille to figs wrapped in olive oil brioche-all created on the spot to incorporate the fresh ingredients Shannon sources every day.To round out this luscious feast, the book includes many other tips and treasures, including overviews of the region's wines, as well as a personal guide to the best restaurants and hotels. Shannon and his family's journey will inspire and delight Francophiles and food lovers alike.

While only one book-length memoir recounting the sojourn of an Australian in France was published in the 1990s, well over 40 have been published since 2000, overwhelmingly written by women. Although we might expect a focus on travel, intercultural adjustment and communication in these texts, this is the case only in a minority of accounts. More frequently, France serves as a backdrop to a project of self-renovation in which transplantation to another country is incidental, hence the question ‘What’s France got to do with it?’ The book delves into what France represents in the various narratives, its role in the self-transformation, and the reasons for the seemingly insatiable demand among readers and publishers for these stories. It asks why these memoirs have gained such traction among Australian women at the dawn of the twenty-first century and what is at stake in the fascination with France.

"The renewal and celebration of the outdoor market culture in recent years, argues de La Pradelle, artfully masks a fierce commitment to modern-day free-market economics. Responding to consumer desire for an experience that recalls a time before impersonal supermarket chains and mass-produced products, buyers and sellers alike create an atmosphere built on various fictions. Vendors at the market at Carpentras, for example, oblige patrons by acting like lifelong acquaintances of those whom they've only just met as they dispense free samples and lively, witty banter. Likewise, going to the market to look for "freshness" becomes a way for the consumer to signify the product's relation to nature - a denial of the workaday reality of growing melons under plastic sheets, then machine-sorting, crating, and transporting them.".

Celebrated by writers from Petrarch to Peter Mayle, Provence's rugged mountains, wild maquis and lavender-filled meadows are world-famous. Historic cities like Arles, Avignon and Aix contain Roman amphitheatres, papal palaces and royal residences, while market towns and picturesque villages maintain age-old traditions of wine producing and agriculture. From the highland towns of Digne and Sisteron to the marshy expanse of the Camargue, Provence encompasses a rich variety of landscapes. Martin Garrett explores a region littered with ancient monuments and medieval castles. Looking at the vibrant dockside ambiance of Marseille and the luminous atmosphere of the Lubéron, he considers how writers like Mistral and Daudet have captured the character of a place and its people. He traces the development of Provence as a Roman outpost, medieval kingdom and modern region of France, revealing through its landmarks the people and events that have shaped its often tumultuous history. Through its architecture, literature and popular culture, this book analyzes and celebrates the identity of a region famous for its pastis and pétanque. Linking the past to the present, it also evokes the intense light and sun-baked stones that have attracted generations of painters and writers.
