    DescriptionGeorgeanne Brennan moved to Provence in 1970, seeking a simpler life. She set off on her many adventures in Provencale cuisine by tracking down a herd of goats, a cool workshop, some rennet, and the lost art of making fresh goat cheese. From this first effort throughout her time in Provence, Brennan transformed from novice "fromagere" to renowned, James Beard Foundation Award-winning cookbook author and food writer. "A Pig in Provence" is the story of how Georgeanne Brennan fell in love with Provence. But it's also the story of making a life beyond the well-trodden path and the story of how food can unite a community. In loving detail, Brennan tells of the herders who maintain a centuries-old grazing route, of the community feast that brings a town to one table, and of the daily rhythms and joys of living by the cycles of food and nature. Sprinkled with recipes that offer samples of Brennan's Provencale cooking, "A Pig in Provence" is a food memoir that urges you to savor every morsel.

    Review quote
    PRAISE FOR "A PIG IN PROVENCE" "You can almost smell the lavender as you follow Brennan's love affair with the province that became her second home and shaped the culinary persona of this cooking teacher and food author. Brennan is a talented storyteller."--"San Francisco Chronicle ""Georgeanne Brennan's captivating memoir reminds me of why I, too, was enchanted by Provence. She beautifully captures the details of living in a place where the culture of the table ties a community together--where everyone knows the butcher and the baker, and everyone depends on the farmers."--Alice Waters, owner, Chez Panisse
