A joint venture of photographer Knab and chef Mackay, this beautiful, coffee-table quality cookbook celebrates the team's partnership in the cooking school Le Baou d'Infer in Provence. Reminiscent of Richard Olney's Provence: the Beautiful Cookbook and Patricia Wells at Home in Provence, the volume will satisfy both armchair travelers and armchair chefs. Near the beginning of the volume, for example, he describes the legendary mistral wind, which can be so irritating that "if it lasts for more than 5 days, a husband has a legal right to kill his wife" (or so the rumor goes).

Alex Mackay is the chef who runs Delia Smith's renowned cookery school . This book provides not just a wonderful collection of mouthwatering dishes, but a slice of the warmth and beauty of Provence itself.

Alex Mackay is the chef who runs Delia Smith's renowned cookery school in Norwich; a man she has described as having a 'rare and special gift' for cookery. After working with Raymond Blanc, first as a sous-chef at Le Manoir au Quat' Saisions then as Director of Blanc's cookery school, in 2000, Alex and photographer Peter Knab opened Le Baou d'Infer, a cookery school in the heart of the Provencal countryside. Peter Knab's stunning photographs sit alongside Alex's vivid descriptions of the scenery, markets and people.

I'm in the South of France and will do each and every recipe here. What a terrific idea book. Great.

We're getting ready for a trip to Provence and thought this book would be useful. It's well written, beautifully illustrated and filled with recipes and stories. Highly recommended.

Ah, Provence, to savor its flavors again. Some British friends gave us this book at "our" gite in Provence, with a dedication: "Here's some inspiration for the next decade." And with all those twists and turns that life can dish out, as it were, this book does remain that: an inspiration, as though one more was needed, to return to Provence.

Just for the photographs alone, this book is an essential purchase. Peter Knab has done the photography, and my British friend, who is also professional photographer explained how difficult it is to realistically photograph food dishes. And every picture is flawless. Time, and time again, Knab gets the light just right. He leavens the food pictures with a well-balanced selection of Provencal scenes, including the long outdoor table, wine glasses already half full, awaiting your arrival.

Alex Mackay is a New Zealander who did his apprenticeship in Michelin-starred kitchens in Courchevel, Beaune and Tours, before teaming up with Knab, and opening Le Baou d'Infer cooking school in the heart of the Var departement, half way between Hyeres and St. Tropez, with the local market being at Cogolin. There is not an index to the recipes, so I'd estimate them to be around 100, each one a "must" before you shake off your mortal coil.

Regrettably, this book seems to have been a "high water mark" of a dream. I received the book, the first edition, in the year it was published, 2003, and the cooking school closed its doors in 2004. And I can find no explanation for its demise, with Mackay apparently running another cooking school in England.

The only criticism of the book is that some of the text must have been written after one too many pastis. Hyperventilating? In the section entitled "Au Bord de la Mer," Mackay says, in regards to the local fish market: "Each fishmonger is so, so proud and truly enthusiastic... the fishmonger is deftly scaling, gutting and lovingly packaging your choice." Hum.

Alas, the "catch," as it were, is in the title. It is cooking IN Provence, and so many of the ingredients cannot be replicated elsewhere. And who would not want to enhance one's appetite with a walk along "au bord de la mer," along the edge of the sea, in those rock pools at low tide, and that wonderful stimulating aroma, the salt you can literally taste, and then return for some wine and oysters, simply prepared, a feast to satiate, and to be shared. Despite the overblown text, 5-stars, plus, for the continued inspiration.

We happened on this book on a recent trip to Provence and what joy it gave us to cook the fantastic recipes with wonderfully fresh spring produce. Alex captures the incredible flavours, colours and textures that is the food of Provence and translates them into recipes that are easily reproduced in any home kitchen. This book is pure magic.
