With Toujours Provence, Peter Mayle continues where his enormously successful A Year in Provence left off. In this funny, savory, irresistible program, Mayle delights us with tales of life in Provence, including finding gold at the bottom of his garden and attending a Pavarotti concert under the stars. He also explores the joys and sometime hazards of wining and dining in France, and introduces us to some truly unique characters - including a wary truffle hunter, a gourmet in a tracksuit, and the wise and crafty Massot, the man from whom Provence holds no secrets.
The life that Peter Mayle portrays is a far cry from the quiet, uneventful existence suggested by picturesque postcards of the southern coast of France. And in his portrayal he proves the adage that, while you may not be able to escape from it all - you sure can have fun trying.
