Some of the most famous food writers and chefs owe their culinary awakening to time spent in France. Marita too discovered a passion for cooking in Provence through her husband, Alain. They are an average family with an average income and average children (among them teenagers who wouldn't hesitate to choose bought hamburgers and frites over any French gastronomic offerings). They don t have the time, energy or money to make complicated and pretentious dishes with expensive ingredients such as truffles or foie gras, and the children have no interest in snails, frogs legs or other French specialties. As a result, Marita and Alain s cookery is down-to-earth, honest, affordable yet delicious. In this book Marita shares the recipes that her large family and their friends enjoy every summer under the plane tree in their front garden dishes of Provencal, Mediterranean or general French origin that may just as easily be enjoyed under a jacaranda or a kiepersol in South Africa. Summer Food in Provence is a delicious medley of stories, told as only Marita can, recipes and photographs. It is a mixture of imagination and common sense, gastronomic delights and everyday practicality, and will delight and inspire both experienced cooks and novices in the kitchen.
