The region—and its many culinary viewpoints—spans from the snowcapped Southern Alps in the north to the French Mediterranean in the south, the Rhône River to the west, and Italy along its eastern border. And like many regions where landscapes and people happily crash into each other, the food is dynamic and exciting. Here are recipes—from drinks to savory to sweet—that capture the modern tables and life lived around them in the south of France today.
Le Sud’s transporting photography expands our visual understanding of Provence outside solely lavender fields and endless summer holidays to showcase the geographically and culturally diverse region and its tables. As in À Table—her inspiring cookbook about dining the French way—Peppler’s recipes drip in home cook equity.
Interwoven alongside the recipes and photography are fun, informative sidebars that reflect this perspective of eating and drinking in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur and provide an inspiring, approachable guide to the south of France. Sidebars elevate a reader’s knowledge of southeastern French cooking and eating, from the wines of the region to after-dinner drinking to the (modern) Provençal cheese plate.
