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."Cooking in Provence" is a collection of recipes born out of this experience - dishes cooked by Alex and his students and inspired by their love not just of the intoxicating flavours and food of the region, but its way of life. The recipes reflect the changing seasons, from refreshing summer dishes such as Salade Nicoise and Pissaladiere to the warming comfort of Daube en Boeuf and Bouillabaisse, authentically evoking the region's unique identity. Peter Knab's stunning photographs sit alongside Alex's vivid descriptions of the scenery, markets and people.
A new edition of this classic collection of recipes: Provence's best-loved dishes, accompanied by stunning photography
"I watched Alex Mackay become a master during his time with me at Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons, and I have always said he is more French than a Frenchman. The recipes in this book show his passion and knowledge while taking you on a tour of all the things I love to eat and experience whenever I'm in Provence."
