"Saint-Rémy is for me one of the greatest places on earth. Brothers in the Kitchen
brings me back to the great Provençal food I have enjoyed there through the years."
-Jacques Pèpin, internationally revered French Chef and author of The Apprentice: My Life in the Kitchen
Few things in life are more satisfying than sharing a fine meal with family and friends, where conversation
flows more liberally than the wine and the bonds we share are strengthened by shared experience.
In 1969, American home cooks were just learning to master the art of French cooking, thanks to
the late great Julia Child. Like much cooking then, preparing gourmet meals still intimidated many for appearing to be complicated and time-consuming. Child.s exploration of French cuisine has led to a
growing interest in international cuisines to the extent that Americans now eat and cook across a broad range of cuisines. The true melting pot is a cook pot.
More than thirty-five years ago, an international businessman formed an unlikely friendship with a French Master Chef. Through the years, Chef Michel Deville has shared his culinary wisdom with a single star pupil and dear friend, Brendan O.Farrell. In early 2005, the pair opened a restaurant in
Saint-Rémy de Provence, near Avignon in the South of France.
Their new collaboration is many things at once, a literary embrace of the many elements that together form "the good life". Brothers in the Kitchen is a meditation on the practice of cooking and the joy of
quality ingredients; a celebration of full, laughing bellies; a warm culinary travelogue; and a first-rate
cooking school text. Full of simple joys and recipes for simple meals, well-prepared, this is a book to be
read, savored, and heartily spattered with the evidence of cooking's labor of love.
