I was so excited to receive a preview of An American in Provence by Jamie Beck. It has all of my great loves: France, photography, stories, and recipes. I’ve read the Autumn section (there’s one for each season). Beautiful, moving essays on her life in France and before moving and how the terroir has changed her. Photography tutorials include working with natural lighting, bug styling, and posing. The recipe I’m most excited to try once the weather starts to turn is French Onion Soup. This is a book to be devoured immediately and then returned to often, as inspiration is needed, the seasons change, or if one needs to get lost in photographs.
An American in Provence will be out on November 1, 2022. You can pre-order it anywhere books are sold.
I was given a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
