Provence, Healthy Cooking, Herbs of Provence, Olive Oil
Cumin and other spices from Africa make their way to Provence through Marseilles. We will stick with our Provence favorites: local produce, fruits, local wines, and the magic Herbs de Provence we gather in the hills.
Going out to dinner lets you know just how you are doing in your own cooking adventures. Lunch in Goult, a beautiful hill town near Gordes, proves interesting and has nice eye appeal.  We had looked into a rental in Gault where a stone windmill at the top of the hill makes this town a great walk.

After hiking you don't care to work too hard in the preparation of a meal. Egg plants tomatoes, thyme, rosemary, grated Parmesan and Camargue sea salt with first cold pressed olive oil make an egg plant dish that takes 15 minutes to prepare and then bakes for one hour while you get some relax time.
The tomatoes bake and take on a sun dried tomato taste.  This one makes up in taste for any lack of eye appeal.
Provence in June brings all the ingredients fresh to market. The foraging trips to the hills provide the herbs, the local vineyards and olive oil mills the rest; it gets no better then cooking in Provence in the spring.
