Panel, Program

Omnivore Books
3885A Cesar Chavez St., San Francisco

June 24, 2024, 6:30-7:30pm

A program of the Villa Albertine San Francisco and Abrams co-presented with Omnivore Books.

Situated on France’s southern coast along the Mediterranean Sea, Marseille is the country’s oldest city, and its unique character is shaped by its inhabitants and their remarkable culinary diversity. Marseille’s authentic flavors escape classification, as the seaport city offers an array of foods, ranging from French and Provençal to home cooking and gourmet. 
In this feast of a book, Marseille native and gourmand Vérane Frédiani captures a portrait of a city through its food and culinary figures. With 70 recipes that include pizza, couscous, seafood, and much more, Taste the World in Marseille offers something for every kind of food lover, and brings the city’s gastronomical recognition, cosmopolitan vibrancy, and remarkable history to readers living outside of its most iconic neighborhoods. 

Join us for this special author talk in celebration of the Taste the World in Marseille US Book Tour.
