Escape to Provence this summer with the "brave, funny" sequel to Elizabeth Bard's bestsellingLunch in Paris(Diane Johnson).

Ten years ago, New Yorker Elizabeth Bard followed a handsome Frenchman up a spiral staircase to a love nest in the heart of Paris. Now, with a baby on the way, Elizabeth takes another leap of faith with her husband when they move to Provence and open an artisanal ice cream shop. Filled with enticing recipes such as stuffed zucchini flowers, fig tart, and honey-and-thyme ice cream,PICNIC IN PROVENCEis the story of everything that happens after the happily ever after. With wit, humor, and a scoop of wild strawberry sorbet, Bard reminds us that life-in and out of the kitchen-is a rendezvous with the unexpected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the story of Molly, Brandon and Delancey I really enjoyed the book and will now read her first book. I am always interested in the restaurant business. Molly tells a good story of her life and marriage with Brandon and how they built the restaurant and business. I love the recipes that are at the end of each chapter. I also admire that Molly admits that she cannot keep up with the pressures of being a pantry cook. She is now handling more administrative parts of running Delanceys, while Brandon handles the front end of the business. Great to hear that how Brandon spent so much time and research to build the perfect pizza. Delanceys is successful and they have opened a cocktail bar next door and Molly had a baby. Based on the book I have looked at her blog orangette which updates the story from the book including her book tour and her podcast Spilled Milk.
