Over 100 delicious recipes inspired by the old-world glamour and elegance of St Tropez.

Bringing to life another side of St Tropez and the legendary Côte d'Azur, Nina shows us a place where cooking has brought people together for generations and creates recipes inspired by locals, places and stories from her childhood here. She explores the real St Tropez and the surrounding area through its secret, scenic walks, eccentric bric-a-brac markets, vineyards and bustling communities of artists and fishermen.

Oozing with charm and filled with classic French recipes for gourmet breakfasts, picnics, lunchtime snacks and dinner parties to impress, NINA ST TROPEZ represents family cooking from across the south of France - with that added splash of St Tropez elegance and glamour that's intrigued people for decades.
