The Mayles' first year in Provence began with a marathon lunch and ended with a gourmet celebration in the classic French style. In between, they experienced a hilarious and unexpected assortment of the curiosities of French rural life - from the violence of the Mistral to the planting of new vines, from the lackadaisical builders to the endless round of visitors - and the gastronomic delights to be enjoyed all year long. Witty, seductive and deeply affectionate, this bestselling account of Provence is as sharp as a chilled pasties.
