Blog Tour Book Review: Picnic Provence by Elizabeth Bard

Pages: 354
Genre: Memior
Format: ARC; Publishers 
Sources: Publishers
Publisher: Little, Brown 
My Review: 4.5\5 

Filled with enticing recipes for stuffed zucchini flowers, fig tart and honey & thyme ice cream, Picnic in Provence is the story of everything that happens after the happily ever after: an American learning the tricks of French motherhood, a family finding a new professional passion, and a cook's initiation into classic Provencal cuisine. With wit, humor and scoop of wild strawberry sorbet, Bard reminds us that life-in and out of the kitchen-is a rendez-vous with the unexpected

My Thoughts: 

Looking for a great book gilt with recipes, well this is the book for you. Going back 10 years with the author was great. I never had so much fun reading a memoir in a while and now, I'm hooked on memoirs. I love Paris so I was glad that this book had something to deal with it. Bard takes us readers on a journey of a lifetime that many people should give give a chance and see if the book is for you. If your a fan of trying new foods give this book a chance. I was kind of skeptical if I should read this book because I really don't try new foods, but Bard convinced me to go out of my comfort zone and give food a shot since that ijs my favorite subject to talk about.
