Product Description

Product Description

The ultimate “dictionary” for lovers of Provence: Peter Mayle’s personal selection of the foods, customs, and words he finds most fascinating, curious, delicious, or just plain fun.

Though organized alphabetically, this is hardly a conventional work of reference. In more than 170 entries, Peter Mayle—bestselling author of A Year in Provence—writes about subjects as wide-ranging as architecture and zingue-zingue-zoun (in the local patois, a word meant to describe the sound of a violin). And, of course, he writes about food and drink: vin rosé, truffles, olives, melons, bouillabaisse, the cheese that killed a Roman emperor, even a cure for indigestion.

Provence A-Z is a delight for Peter Mayle’s ever-growing audience and the perfect complement to any guidebook on Provence, or, for that matter, France.

5.0 out of 5 stars To read when in Provence... 29 Jun 2014

I loved this, mind you, we were in Province when I read it, which I'm sure helped! This is not a guide but a collection of thoughts and it really helped me get in the mood for a holiday. Mr Mayle's easy style makes for a relaxed read. The opinions are just that, opinions... so don't expect total accuracy or fill unbiased information. A great addition to the sun, wine and food of Presence.

Peter Mayle is always a treat and this book is no exception. His work is a must for anyone who loves France. The only this that spoiled it for me though was the occasional use of And err Ivan spellings
