This is a dynamic hands-on cooking class with a menu inspired by M.F. K. Fisher’s time in Provence, 1970. Guests will be making food for the evening as well as hearing the author discuss his book, Provence 1970: M.F.K. Fisher, Julia Child, James Beard & the Reinvention of American Taste. Luke Barr, grand nephew of MFK Fisher, tells the story of the memorable weeks in the hills of Provence with culinary greats M.F.K. Fisher and her friends, Julia Child and James Beard. Through a combination of journals, never before revealed letters, research, and interviews, comes a story that shares conversations, meals, debates and philosophies from culinary legends who influenced food in America. Luke Barr is an editor at Travel and Leisure.
Provence, 1970 is about a singular historic moment. In the winter of that year, more or less coincidentally, the iconic culinary figures James Beard, M.F.K. Fisher, Julia Child, Richard Olney, Simone Beck, and Judith Jones found themselves together in the South of France.
