Lightbulb Free (nook/Kindle) Provence Food & Wine: Art of Living [Cookbook + Culture & Travel]

Provence Food and Wine: The Art of Living by François Millo & Viktorija Todorovska is their lavishly-illustrated guide to Exactly What It Says In The Title (apparently this is 3rd in a series of European-regional enhanced guides-with-recipes), comprising a thorough survey of the wine-making areas of the titular French region, alongside cultural/historical background and areas-of-interest travel tips, as well as a cookbook portion featuring local recipes divided by subregion and anecdotes thereof, free courtesy of publisher Agate's Surrey imprint.

This is really very nifty, with lots of mini-write-ups on local specialties and tips on enjoying your home reproductions of them, as well as tidbits of Provençal backgrounder info, and plenty of photos as well.

Currently free, probably just until the weekend @ B&N (may also drop in the UK) & Amazon (not available to Canadians, but free in the UK), and directly from the publisher's webcatalogue page (DRM-free PDF available worldwide).

And this has been the (late!) selected 3rd (non-repeat) free ebook thread of the day.

Because even though I'm a lousy, lazy cook (or maybe because of it), I'm an absolute sucker for regional food guides with plenty of culture/history write-ups of the stories behind the local dishes, and this looks to be an especially nicely-done one, and available worldwide to boot, (even if it's "just" in PDF format, free PDFs for the international Gentle Readers are better than none, IMHO) so

Enjoy!

Description
Provence, the beautiful region that sits at the scenic crossroads of southern France, the Italian Alps, and the Mediterranean, has long been an area of historical import and distinct culture. It was the first Roman colony beyond Italy and serves as a modern-day commercial hub and resort area. Above all else, Provence is known as a producer of some of the finest food and wine France has to offer, with a cuisine that emphasizes healthful ingredients such as olive oil, fresh vegetables, Mediterranean seafood, as well as dry, aromatic rosé.

Provence Food & Wine is one of the only English-language books available on the cuisine, wine, and sights of this stunning Mediterranean enclave on the southern coast of France. Packed with 47 traditional Provencal recipes, all of which emphasize the incredibly popular and healthy Mediterranean diet, Provence Food & Wine also provides detailed information on regional wines, most notably rosé. This is the most famous wine of Provence and has made great strides in the US: sales of Provence rosé increased by 40% in 2012 with the trend continuing into 2013. Readers will be able to learn about pairing between wine and food, as Todorovska and Millo expertly explain what to look for and where to get these wines outside of Europe.

Full-color photography shows off all of these dishes, as well as the dazzling sights of the region's lush interior, sparkling coastline, and breathtaking vistas. Beyond its use as a cookbook and wine-pairing guide, Provence Food & Wine will also be a resource for travelers on how to have the complete art de vivre experience.

Provence Food & Wine is the third cookbook about the hidden gems of regional European cuisine by Viktorija Todorovska, who trained at the prestigious Florentine culinary academy Apicius and owns the food, wine, and travel company Oliva Cooking. Her books have been critically acclaimed for their simple recipes, straightforward advice, and unique yet accessible ingredients. François Millo is the author of several books on the foods and wines of Provence, including a book for the Brazilian market. He is also an acclaimed photographer, capturing the spirit of Provence, its landscapes, and its people. The blend of French, Italian, North African, and Mediterranean flavors brings readers on a tasting tour of this rich, historical land, and there is no better guide than the charming personalities of Viktorija Todorovska and François Millo.
