“There’s no doubt about it. Food tastes better on Sunday.” — Encore Provence

If only Peter Mayle would move to more countries and regions and then document his journey. I love reading these books! If you’ve been to the area he’s talking about, it makes you giggle; and if you haven’t then it just makes you want to go there. Organized in no particular order, the chapters are like little excerpts of the region – some short stories, others city guides. A Year in Provence is definitely a better book, but Encore Provence: New Adventures in the South of France is a great follow-up.
