Helen Lefkowitz Horowitz explains how Provencewhich a mid-twentieth-century tour guide called mostly dry, scrubby, rocky, arid land became a land of desire associated with a slower, richer way of life. Horowitz reveals the social forces and individuals who created the idea of Provence both in France and, critically, in the United States. Horowitz demystifies Provence and the perpetuation of its image today, even as she revels in its atmospheric, cultural, and culinary allures. Answering her key question-- What did Americans know about Provence and when did they know it? --takes us back to Thomas Jefferson s travels there and through to the mid-20th-century construction of it as a light-filled, relaxing idyll."

"At once profound, spiritual, and witty, Master of the Three Ways is a remarkable work about human nature, the essence of life, and how to live simply and with awareness. In three hundred and fifty-seven verses, the author, Hung Ying-ming a seventeenth-century Chinese sage explores good and evil, honesty and deception, wisdom and foolishness, and heaven and hell. He draws from the wisdom of the Three Creeds Taoism, Confucianism, and Zen Buddhism to impress upon us that by combining simple elegance with the ordinary, we can make our lives artistic and poetic. This sense, along with a particular understanding of Zen that makes art from the simple in everyday life, has permeated Chinese and Japanese culture to this day. The work is divided into two books. The first generally deals with the art of living in society and the second is concerned with man's solitude and contemplations of nature. These themes repeatedly spill over into each other, creating multiple levels of meaning."

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. It was the first Roman colony beyond Italy and serves as a modern-day commercial hub and resort area. Above all else, Provence 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 & 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 & 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: sales of Provence rosé increased by 40% in 2012 with the trend continuing into 2013. Readers will be able to learn about pairing between wine and food, as Todorovska and 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. Beyond its use as a cookbook and wine-pairing guide, Provence Food & Wine will also be a resource for travelers on how to have the complete art de vivre experience. Provence Food & Wine is the third cookbook about the hidden gems of regional European cuisine by Viktorija Todorovska, who trained at the prestigious Florentine culinary academy Apicius and owns the food, wine, and travel company Oliva Cooking. Her books have been critically acclaimed for their simple recipes, straightforward advice, and unique yet accessible ingredients. François Millo is the author of several books on the foods and wines of Provence, including a book for the Brazilian market. He is also an acclaimed photographer, capturing the spirit of Provence, its landscapes, and its people. The blend of French, Italian, North African, and Mediterranean flavors brings readers on a tasting tour of this rich, historical land, and there is no better guide than the charming personalities of Viktorija Todorovska and François Millo.

The food scene in Paris has changed dramatically since 2006, whenMarkets of Paris was first published. Yes, the same markets are held in the same locales as always—literally, for centuries—but many have undergone a remarkable transformation led by a young generation of purveyors focused, even more than their predecessors, on local and organic ("bio") produce. Markets of Paris, 2nd Edition revisits and updates the entire market scene in Paris, with new entries, including Virtual Markets and Market Streets, Markets Open on Sunday, Artisan Bakers and Artisan Foods, Getting Along in the Food Markets, Brocante Fairs, and more. Updates focus on the most interesting vendors and most unique and enticing offerings to be found at each locale, including prepared food that can be eaten on the spot. One of the biggest changes in the Paris market scene in recent years has been the spike of interest in organic, reflected in the popularity of the Raspail organic market. Often it's referred to as "Le Marché Bio," and many claim it's the crème de la crème of all Paris's markets. Restaurant listings have been updated, too, with 15 new additions that have been chosen because of their new-generation chefs' approach to fresh ingredients or their proximity to featured markets. A new section titled If You Have Limited Time directs the visitor to the most interesting markets near his or her accommodations. Finally, the book has been reorganized by arrondissement to be more user friendly, and it has a brand-new look with all new photos and a refreshed, modernized design.

A Culinary Legacy from Escoffier to Today is far more than a cookbook. It offers the reader an entrance into the daily life of a small village in Provence, France through food and the interpretation of recipes over 100-years-old. The photos provide this journey with explicit depiction of not only many of the dishes, but of the lively activity of the markets and village life in a medieval French town. The book ties together the writings and work of a young Escoffier-trained chef of the late 1800's to the culinary endeavors of his granddaughter and a classical trained chef of Provence in the 21st century. The liveliness of the foods of Provence are brought to the table through recipes that can be accomplished by any cook who has even basic culinary knowledge and experience. Each recipe is offered in a step-by-step process and often alternate suggestions are given for ingredients and procedure. While the book offers recipes in every standard category of a normal cookbook, it does not repeat many of the typical recipes found in books on Provençal cuisine. The recipes are today's version of what a young chef created over one hundred years ago in kitchens along the Mediterranean Sea and later in elegant hotel kitchens of America. The authors offer their interpretations of the original journal, relying on their years of experience in the professional kitchen and injecting their own styles and techniques. Consideration to ingredients currently available and affordable to home cooks is paramount and often substitutions are suggested.
