Toujours Provence by Peter Mayle
  

Synopsis

Toujours Provence by Peter Mayle

A second idyllic helping of rural life in France from the bestselling author of the classic A YEAR IN PROVENCE. Skulking through customs with a suitcase full of truffles, toads singing the Marseillaise, taking pastis lessons and finding gold at the bottom of the garden, you might think there is little time left for pleasures of the table. TOUJOURS PROVENCE proves that while you might not be able to get away from it all, you can have fun trying. 'Peter Mayle's idyllic portrait makes you almost taste the wonderful food and wine, feel the sun and balmy breezes' Sunday Express 'Anyone with any feel for the land and the people who lead their lives close to it will be enchanted' Yorkshire Evening Post 'Splendidly amusing... filled with things which will help you to understand, at least in part, the glory of this wonderful place' Dirk Bogarde
