Jewish Cooking in Provence

My friend Joan Nathan ( is a Washington, D.C.-based author who writes about food for the New York Times. She’s almost done with her 10th book, a history of Jewish food and cooking in France, which will be published next year by Knopf. From May 4th to 8th, Joan will be in the Vaucluse area on her final research trip, and she’s looking for any information on the cooking of the Jews who have lived in Provence for centuries, including the Juifs du Pape, who were allowed to live in France under the protection of the Avignon popes. If you have any info or resources to share, Joan would love to hear from you by email ( or phone (home 202-966-8769; cell 202-422-3927).
