When You Visit Ménerbes Make Sure to Try Chez Auzet

By Cheryl Shfflebotham:

Hungry during the afternoon when restaurants and grocery stores are closed in Provence? Then head up to Chez Auzet at the top of Ménerbes for the most delicious quiche for just five euros! If you want to splurge, you can spend seven euros and get a salad with your quiche.

There are two choices—either quiche Lorraine or quiche Provençal—along with a selection of croissants, pain au chocolat, and biscuits to choose from.

…Continue reading here for Cheryl’s photos and to learn how they got the local’s treatment at Chez Auzet after just a couple weeks, helped by the fact that they frequented this café daily. The chef/owner is a talented baker from Cavaillon and even co-published a book with Peter Mayle.

Ménerbes Visitor Information

Considered one of Les Plus Beau Villages de France, it’s probably no surprise that Peter Mayle and his wife Jennie chose to settle in Ménerbes in 1987.  Their story of restoring a run-down farmhouse became creative material for his bestseller “A Year in Provence.” However, the Mayles were not the first to discover this hilltop village in the Luberon. Among the famous, were artists Pablo Picasso and Nicolas de Staël and cookbook writer Elizabeth David (see below).

Although, Cheryl and her husband live in upstate New York, she tells us that she is always yearning, planning, maneuvering to make her way back to France.

Cheryl's love for France started almost eleven years ago with "a once in a lifetime" ten-year anniversary trip. These wannabe expats have been back every year since that trip!

Cheryl's first French love is the region of Burgundy, but then a few years ago, she discovered Provence. Now she admits that she is torn between Burgundy and Provence. It sounds like Provence has her spellbound, "I can’t quite put a finger on what it is about Provence, but its intoxication keeps luring me back for more."

Cheryl started her blog Cobblestone and Vineyards to explore the simple charms of France, those small details that capture the heart.
