Description

Cuisine of the Sun is a savory collection of over 60 classic and reimagined Provençal recipes peppered with anecdotes that will cast a ray of sunshine onto your plate. It’s a beautifully photographed, edible love letter to the South of France. Savor rustic dishes like olive tapenade, Marseille fish soup and a rose scented daube of lamb that will transport you back to the French countryside.

Through his inspired collection of recipes, de Mélogue now emerges as a leading proponent of both contemporary and traditional renditions of the flavorful cuisine from the south of France and surrounding regions. Your mouth will water as you join his family’s epic picnic of a simple grilled loup de mer with artichokes barigoule or foraging through the woods looking for mushrooms to cook in fragrant mixture of duck fat, garlic and herbs. Close your eyes and be transported to the old port in Marcel Pagnol’s Marseille by the scent of his Mussels steamed in Pastis with Spanish Chorizo, Leeks and Piquillo Peppers.  Delight in his wildly popular artichoke tarte Tatin or his exhilarating version of the classic fish stew Bourride he lovingly calls Provencal Sunshine. Every dish is a reflection of the moment; an edible photograph of Francois’s mind. Delight in desserts that sweetly cross the fence between American and French cultures like salted caramel apple beignet, brown butter fig tarts and even his version of Julia Child’s classic dense chocolate and almond cake.

Lush photography coupled with tender childhood reminiscences, and classic and reimagined Provençal recipes make Cuisine of the Sun, A Ray of Sunshine on Your Plate perfect for those who love food and jubilate our relationship to it. This is not just another cookbook, but an invitation to take a seat and join in the celebration of life from a true foodie’s perspective.

    A great cookbook! I’ve been following Francois for awhile on his blog (Eat til you Bleed), but it’s really nice to have the cookbook. Try the Beef Cheek Daube recipe – it’s wonderful – the meat literally melts in your mouth.

    The cookbook gives you the recipes, and accompanying photos, but it doesn’t beat you over the head to follow exactly. As a home “chef/cook/chief bottle washer” I love it. It also provides bits of advice throughout on other food related items. One example – pit olives yourself – it’s easy to do, and the flavor is better – I have to say that I was skeptical, but then tried it with the provided olive tapenade recipe – Francois was (no surprise) correct.

    Buy the book – you won’t regret it.

    • thank you so much… very kind

    Super cookbook with interesting recipes. I have given away one for Christmas, and have two more on order — it’s that good. The pictures are accurate and enticing; the recipes are clear and well explained. More to the point, everything I’ve made from the book is delicious. This one is a winner!

    • thank you so much for the kind words!
