The original story of falling for France, Perfume from Provence was first published in 1935 and became a best-seller. Winifred Fortescue was an actress who rubbed shoulders with the likes of Jerome K. Jerome and George Bernard Shaw when she married Sir John Fortescue, the king's librarian and archivist and famous historian of the British Army. Tempted by a better climate and the cheaper cost of living, they left England and found a stone house amid olive groves, high in the hills above Nice. Almost at once they were bewitched by the landscape and especially their garden - delightful terraces of vines, wild flowers, roses and lavender - and by the charming, warm-hearted and wily Provencals. Winifred's witty account of life with stonemasons, craftsmen and gardeners as they extend the house is an enchanting read. AUTHOR: Born in 1888, Winifred Fortescue gave up her career on the stage after marriage and founded a successful fashion and interior design business. She later began writing articles for the Times and Punch, and inaugurated a woman's page for The Morning Post. She wrote seven books, of which Perfume from Provence was the first. SELLING POINTS: A perennial favourite, Perfume from Provence appeals to lovers of gardens and of the South of France, with over 100,00 copies of previous editions sold to date.

“Almost as much guide book as it is cookbook . . . the authors dive into the ingredients unique to Provencal cuisine and the history of the region.” —Kitchn Provence, the beautiful region that sits at the scenic crossroads of southern France, the Italian Alps, and the Mediterranean, has long been an area of historical import and distinct culture. But above all else, it is known as a producer of some of the finest food and wine France has to offer, with a cuisine that emphasizes healthful ingredients such as olive oil, fresh vegetables, Mediterranean seafood, as well as dry, aromatic rosé. Provence Food and Wine is one of the only English-language books available on the cuisine, wine, and sights of this stunning Mediterranean enclave on the southern coast of France. Packed with 47 traditional Provencal recipes, all of which emphasize the incredibly popular and healthy Mediterranean diet, Provence Food and Wine also provides detailed information on regional wines, most notably rosé. This is the most famous wine of Provence and has made great strides in the US. Readers will be able to learn about pairing between wine and food, as Viktorija Todorovska and François Millo expertly explain what to look for and where to get these wines outside of Europe. Full-color photography shows off all of these dishes, as well as the dazzling sights of the region's lush interior, sparkling coastline, and breathtaking vistas. In Provence Food and Wine, Todorovska and Millo “bring the joie de vivre of this region right to your fingertips, capturing its allure with simplicity and heart” (One for the Table).
