Feast of Provence

Artisanale French Country Cooking

As the summer draws to a close, we wanted to find a way to celebrate our local farmers late season bounty - garlic, eggplants, tomatoes, peppers, fruits and greens. For us, the best way to do this is to feature the cuisine of Provence, region whose bountiful sun, sand and sea defines their food and feasts.

"It is a resourceful peasant cuisine (though refined by centuries of practice), with powerful base ingredients - olive oil, garlic, anchovies, and aromatic herbs - to enhance the flavour of fresh vegetables and simple cuts of meat."  - The Cuisine of the Sun, Mireille Johnston
