For lunch today, we braised small whole eggplants, garlic, cherry tomatoes, anchovies, and basil in olive oil. It tasted like midsummer in Cagnes-sur-Mer on the French Riviera. And brought to mind Mireille Johnston and her 1976 book, Cuisine of the Sun. It’s a beautiful gift when flavors evoke times, places, and people from the past.
