Colors of Provence: Traditions, Recipes, and Home Decorations from the South of France by Michel Biehn
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A journey into the heart of France's most beloved region through the rich tapestry of colors that constitute the Provencal palette. Under the bright Provencal sun, the colors of earth, stone, trees, fruits, and flowers give this region its unique character and beauty--from the deep purple of lavender fields to the radiant yellow of sunflowers, and from the bright red of vine-ripened tomatoes to the earthy blackness of fresh truffles, the essential elements of Provence are unfolded chapter by chapter and color by color. Ochre bricks and roof tiles are set against ripe red cherries, while glistening clementines share the orange hues of Mediterranean coral. An insider's guide includes the best addresses for fabrics, ceramics, antiques, and embroidery, sources for gourmet delicacies, and recipes for uniquely Provencal dining experiences. This book is a visually evocative and essential reference on this unique corner of the world.
