After a PhD in Political Theory at the London School of Economics Regina von Planta worked in Investment Management. Through a film series, directed by her husband, she discovered the Ardeche and, for a while, the family settled there on a small farm. She started to create a garden on the derelict land and discovered what skills are required to grow beautiful plants but also good produce on the relatively poor soil and small terraces. Her interest became a passion and she decided to write about the people and the delicious food they produce in this hidden part of the South of France.
