Paris to Provence : Childhood Memories of Food and France
From Paris to Provence is a culinary travelogue of separate summers spent in France, interweaving a collection of simple recipes with evocative memories and stories of those years.
The recipes are simple and accessible to readers, but reflect France’s culinary sophistication and traditions Ethel and Sara discovered during their childhood summers.

Each chapter of Paris to Provence is representative of a specific part of Sara and Ethel’s summer travels: Road Trips, Farmers Markets, Street Food, Cafes and Bistros, Afternoon Snacks and Meals with Family and Friends. The recipes are drawn from memory of places, foods and ingredients experienced while traveling with their families.
With more than 50 recipes to draw from, the book gives readers a range of desserts, side dishes, main dishes and snacks that can be paired together and/or enjoyed individually.
Visually, the book is a collection of location photography, ingredients and finished dishes. Sara Remington has captured the wonder and discovery from a child’s perspective through her lush, evocative images.
