5.0 out of 5 stars a delight to all the senses, 13 Mar. 2003
This review is from: Cooking in Provence (Hardcover)
Anyone expecting this to be just a terrific Provencal cookbook is in for a very pleasant surprise. Alex Mackay's mastery of french cuisine has become almost a given, especially for those who have had the chance to sample his work in Britain or on the continent. What surprises most about this new book is the incredible richness and depth of the recipes and the vibrant photographic textures of Peter Knab. One need not be a master chef like Alex to indulge in the delicious imagery of this book.
More than just a cookbook, this is just as much a carefully guided and informed tour into the culinary heart and soul of Provence. Peter Knab takes the book far beyond the kitchen, to the fields and overflowing family gatherings of the sun-drenched region.
Finding this book in the dead of an otherwise dreary winter provided a delightful escape to what seems a better place and time. I can't help but think that Alex Mackay's classic recipes, once attempted, will get us closer still.
