SOLD OUT - Cooking Demo: The Provence Cookbook

SOLD OUT - Cooking Demo: The Provence Cookbook

One of my favorite books of all time is Peter Mayle’s A Year in Provence.  His witty and warm-hearted account of updating a 200-year-old stone farmhouse in a  remote Provencal village, while living there — is stylish and fun, but also warmly appreciative of all things local.  Mr. Mayle passed away earlier this year, and his final book will be released on June 26th, so we knew it was time to celebrate all of his writing, and cooking from Patricia Wells’ Provence Cookbook seemed like the perfect PPB way to celebrate.  Come on over to fete Provence with us!  The cost includes a copy of A Year in Provence included (we can substitute/exchange another book if you already own it) 

See you here!   — Sandy

Cooking Demo: What do Italians eat in the summer?

Cooking Demo: What do Italians eat in the summer?

PPB’s resident Italian chef, Cathy, is an expert at all things cookery but especially her own native cuisine.  Come Fall, 2018 we are excited to offer a year-long series celebrating Italian cooking from every aspect; we will have a restaurant chefs series, an “Italian Moms” home-cooking series, and of course a taste-test comparison of one of her favorite Italian cookbook authors, Lidia Bastianich and my very most favorite, Marcella Hazan.  For now though, we wanted to whet your appetites with Cathy’s favorite recipes for warm weather Italian food - salads and veggies and quicker-cook pasta sauces and entrees, plus of course -- aperitifs!  Come on over to Ciao, Italia!

As America’s most trusted and beloved cookbook author, Ina Garten--the Barefoot Contessa--has taught millions of people how to cook. A home cook at heart, Ina knows that cooking and entertaining can be difficult, so to make her recipes simple and streamlined, she tests and retests each recipe until it’s as straightforward and delicious as possible.

Beginner and advanced cooks alike will love Ina’s delectable recipes, and if you have questions along the way, don’t worry--Ina’s practical cooking advice talks you through every detail, as though she were right there by your side.
