Does this month's book, Paris to Provence, make you want to hop on the next flight to France? Join us at the C.G. DiArie Vineyard and Winery on June 8 for an afternoon of talk, wine and food in a setting reminiscent of Provence. Register now.
How are you enjoying reading the books this month? From the beautiful photographs and recipes in the book by Ethel Brennan and Sara Remington to the stories of living the life of a young family and the history of Provence in A Pig in Provence I don't think it's difficult to imagine yourself doing it. Perhaps after reading a chapter you decide to have your own party in August and invite your friends to A Grand Aoili! Have them bring their own utensils and you provide the food and some lovely wine. What a wonderful evening it could be. If only we had old friends who could come and tell stories of truffle hunting and fighting in the resistance, of swimming in the blue waters and lying on the rocky beaches at Nice, or better yet, the beignet vendor strolling down the beach selling his basket full of beignets.....We may not have beignets, but we we will have other Mediterranean treats and very lovely wines, so we look forward to seeing you on June 8th.
As always, thanks for reading.
