From the proprietor-chefs of the Provence Mediterranean Grill and Provence Marinaside in Vancouver, B.C., New World Provence is a French cookbook designed for contemporary North American audiences, featuring healthy, easy-to-find ingredients prepared using traditional French techniques tweaked with the home cook in mind.The book includes beautiful yet simple recipes which take advantage of meats, seafood, and vegetables abundant in markets across the continent. 

The recipes not only reflect North American sensibilities, but familial ones as well; authors Jean-Francis and Alessandra Quaglia are the parents of two young sons, and Jean-Francis's mother is a renowned chef in France who comes to Vancouver frequently to cook at her son's restaurants. These relationships pervade the book, which reveals how a common love and respect for food can be passed on from generation to generation, from the old world to the new.
