"Looking at the gorgeous photographs, you can't help but wish you'd been invited to that picnic or long lunch in the shade of silvery olive trees. Peppler emphasizes the ease that comes from cooking with really good seasonal produce. Her recipes are lucid; her writing, relaxed and engaging."--The Wall Street Journal

"Peppler's voice-driven writing is a treat. . . . This sparkling collection will delight foodies and armchair travelers alike."--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

From James Beard Book Award finalist Rebekah Peppler: The definitive guide to the food, drink, and lifestyle of southeastern Provence-Alpes-C te d'Azur, featuring recipes that reflect the Proven al table from a modern perspective.

The charms of le sud are many. The food culture is vibrant and season-focused; the tables are welcoming and convivial. In Le Sud, Rebekah Peppler distills these flavors, techniques, and spirit of the South of France into a never-before-seen collection of recipes, photographs, and stories.

The region--and its many culinary viewpoints--spans from the snowcapped Southern Alps in the north to the French Mediterranean in the south, the Rh ne River to the west, and Italy along its eastern border. And like many regions where landscapes and people happily crash into each other, the food is dynamic and exciting. Here are recipes--from drinks to savory to sweet--that capture the modern tables and life lived around them in the south of France today.

Le Sud's transporting photography expands our visual understanding of Provence outside solely lavender fields and endless summer holidays to showcase the geographically and culturally diverse region and its tables. As in Table--her inspiring cookbook about dining the French way--Peppler's recipes drip in home cook equity.

Interwoven alongside the recipes and photography are fun, informative sidebars that reflect this perspective of eating and drinking in Provence-Alpes-C te d'Azur and provide an inspiring, approachable guide to the south of France. Sidebars elevate a reader's knowledge of southeastern French cooking and eating, from the wines of the region to after-dinner drinking to the (modern) Proven al cheese plate.

Le Sud is more than a recipe book; it is a dive into and a celebration of this abundant, enchanting region that has long captured the imaginations of many.

ACCESSIBLE FRENCH COOKING: With dishes that are easy to make on a weeknight but impressive enough to serve at a party, Le Sud gives home cooks the tools they need to recreate the magic of a Proven al table anywhere in the world. Included are recipes that take you from start--Tapenades, Pissaladi re, and Martini Proven al--to mains and sides--Market Day Roast Chicken and Potatoes, The Pasta I Crave Every Time I'm Near the Sea, and Ratatouille--through to the very end of the meal--Navettes, La Tropézienne, and Tarte au Citron.

MORE THAN A COOKBOOK: With insight into the staples of South of France living, from Proven al wine to march must-haves, tips on gathering, and the longstanding tradition of ap ro, this book is so much more than a collection of recipes.

A GORGEOUS GIFT FOR FRANCOPHILES: Shot in Provence-Alpes-C te d'Azur, Le Sud is filled with Joann Pai's evocative photography. Readers will feel as if they are traveling through and seated around tables across the south of France.

Perfect for:

  • Francophiles the world over, readers with existing memories of France, and those who want to armchair travel alike.
  • Anyone who loves to eat seasonally and cook with fresh ingredients.
  • Relaxed cooks and hosts looking for recipes that are approachable for the home cook.
  • Fans of Rebekah Peppler's work, including Table, her James Beard Award-nominated book Ap ritif, and her writing in the New York Times.
  • People of all ages who like to plan unfussy meals with delicious food and minimal prep.
  • Folks who dream of or are planning a trip to le sud.
