Peter Mayle's seductive memoirs (A Year in Provence, Encore Provence, Toujours Provence) are easily acquired tastes. He had me at foie gras. Tales of wine tasting, truffle hunting, and searching for the perfect corkscrew are the next best thing to being in the south of France. No wonder, Provence A-Z promptly became my French bible. Yes, I’m a city girl at heart, but come weekends, I like to escape to the country. Paris and Provence are perfect complements. But, when you can’t pop across the pond, a delicious travel memoir is a quick fix. So is the film A Good Year, which was shot in Bonnieux and Gordes. Luckily, Food & Wine and American Express Publishing want to make French fantasies come true. Put down your book, turn off the film, and enter for a chance to win a $25,000 South of France dream vacation tout de suite.
