The ultimate “dictionary” for lovers of Provence: Peter Mayle's personal selection of the foods, customs and words he finds most fascinating, curious, delicious, or just plain fun.\n\nThough organized from A to Z, this is hardly a conventional work of reference. In more than 170 entries, Peter Mayle—bestselling author of "A Year in Provence"—writes about subjects as wide-ranging as architecture and "zingue-zingue-zoun" (in the local patois, a word meant to describe the sound of a violin). And, of course, he writes about food and drink:" vin rosé", truffles, olives, melons, bouillabaisse, the cheese that killed a Roman emperor, even a cure for indigestion. \n \n"Provence A-Z" is a delight for Peter Mayle's ever-growing audience and the perfect complement to any guidebook on Provence, or, for that matter, France.\n\n\n"From the Trade Paperback edition."
