Georgeanne Brennan moved to Provence in 1970, seeking a simpler life. She set off on her many adventures in Proven#65533;ale 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 fromag#65533;re 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 Proven#65533;ale cooking, A Pig in Provence is a food memoir that urges you to savor every morsel.
