Who is Tante Edith ?

Tante Edith’s kitchen is her private sphere, her little den…

She has been living in that mas (traditional house) in Provence for a very long time : indeed she has never been long away from it since she has always spent her holidays there. The house belonged to her grandmother and she has spent days there with her granny Ninon preparing meals for the whole family...

When she closes her eyes, she hears the regular thumping of the pestle in the mortar, the rustling of the garlic peels, the sharp noise of the knife on the olive-wood cutting-board...

When she closes her eyes, she smells the scent of thyme in the bakehouse, the strong smell of the stockfish fished the same morning by her grandfather and the warm sweet perfume of the garden’s apricots...

When she closes her eyes, she remembers the mellow taste of the melons from the vegetable garden, the faint sourness of the freshly picked almonds and the taste of the daube (Provencal beef stew) which had simmered night-long on the cooker...

When she opens her eyes, Tante Edith glances outside and takes in all the people she has invited and who are gathered today under the pine trees around the large wooden table: the faint mistral (dry wind that blows in the Rhône Valley) brings a whiff of cool air to this stifling summer day and carries with it the scent of lavender from the neighboring fields...

On the colorful table-cloth her starters, dishes, desserts, soft drinks are displayed, all prepared with care, respect and patience as always following the traditional Provencal recipes , taken from her recipe book, her book of magic as she calls it...

Tante Edith’s whole life is in hat book, for what she likes above all is to perpetuate the tradition of genuine Provencal cooking.

And probably too because she knows from experience that her traditional recipes represent as many opportunities to spend simple but true moments with the people she loves.

Chez-Tante-Edith.com is a website born from a combination of ideas, energies and experiences.

The site is also the outcome of a common desire to make Provence live on the Internet, a wish for cybernetic adventures, a real passion for Provencal cooking..

Finally, Chez-Tante-Edith.com is an improbable and incredible story of friendship...

But truly who is behind Chez-Tante-Edith.com ?

This is probably one of Tante Edith’s biggest secrets, one she will reveal little by little, day after day, hint by hint in her diary...
