Cooking in Provence by Alex MacKay

Book Description

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. Together they conjure a vision of Provence and the food integral to the region - from the fish caught along its beautiful coastline, to the aromatic herbs and vegetables harvested from its fields and the fruit grown in its orchards. This book provides not just a wonderful collection of mouthwatering dishes, but a slice of the warmth and beauty of Provence itself.

Author Biography - Alex MacKay

Alex Mackay combines a love of food with a passion for teaching. At the age of nineteen he left his native New Zealand for France where he worked in three Michelin-starred kitchens. He visited Provence at every opportunity. In 1992, Alex came to Britain to become the sous-chef at Raymond Blanc's world-famous Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons. He subsequently became the director of Le Manoir's cookery school before setting up Le Baou d'Infer and then going on to head up Delia Smith's cookery workshops in Norwich. Peter Knab studied photography in Germany, specialising in fashion and advertising. When he and his wife Diana decided to look for a holiday retreat in France, they discovered Le Baou d'Infer in Provence, originally an old working farmhouse. Peter was the photographer for his lifelong friend Delia Smith's Summer and Winter Collection cookbooks in the 1990s.
