From James Beard Book Award finalist Rebekah Peppler: The definitive guide to the food, drink, and lifestyle of southeastern France, featuring 100 recipes that reflect the simple, seasonal, and multicultural French table from a modern perspective.

For centuries, artists, vacationers, and food writers have fallen hard for the charms of the south of France. And like many regions where landscapes and people happily crash into each other, the food is dynamic and exciting. In Le Sud, Rebekah Peppler distills the flavors, techniques, and spirit of Provence, the Alps, and Côte d’Azur into a never-before-seen collection of recipes, photographs, and stories that give us a fresh new look at the region.

This French cuisine cookbook and lifestyle guide shares 100 sweet, savory, and cocktail recipes along with 100+ transporting photographs that expand our perception from lavender fields and afternoon pastis to a geographically and culturally diverse region of ocean, rivers, mountains, marshes, and plains and the delicious dishes that represent them. As in À Table—her inspiring cookbook about dining the Parisian way—Peppler prioritizes simplicity over complicated techniques and sketches the meals that fuel simple gatherings, meet-ups, hikes, and days at the beach.

Interwoven with the recipes are sidebars and primers that elevate a reader’s knowledge of southern French staples: wines of the region, after-dinner drinking, how little one can wear to the beach, and healing by the sea. Le Sud is more than a recipe book; it is also a deep celebration of this historic, diverse, abundant, enchanting region that has captured the imaginations of so many.
