London-based chef Nina Parker has just published a fabulous cookbook inspired by St Tropez.
What makes the book so special are not just the photos of the now famous little fishing village, its narrow streets and beaches, its markets, its iconic characters.
The book is infused with the taste of the summers Nina spent in St Tropez. Every recipe oozes with the warmth of summer and the abundance of seasonal fresh fruit, vegetables, fish and game in this region of Southern France.
Along the pages, you'll find a tribute to the people who have accompanied the author's summers by the Mediterranean. You'll meet Patrice de Colmont, owner of Club 55 and his famous vegetable platter. You'll taste Le Mazagran's slow-cooked ratatouille and fisherman Lucien's special sardines.
It's a colorful, personal cookbook that quickly climbed up to the top of my list of favorites. Highly recommended!
