Peppered with new recipes throughout, PICNIC IN PROVENCE is a delightful look at French life from an outsider who has worked diligently to become an insider. Bard draws perceptive and entertaining descriptions of the quirky members of her new community. Elizabeth Bard's books are a true treat and great for a stay-cation. Bon Appetit!

I really enjoyed Bard’s first memoir, “Lunch in Paris”, so I decided to read this follow up. I’m glad that I did. This title is still full of yummy food and a beautiful setting, but it's also about choosing to chase your dreams instead of settling for financial security at the expense of your happiness. An inspiring read!
