The Olive Trilogy is the story of the
love affair between actress Carol Drinkwater and television
producer Michel Noll and a Provençal olive farm,
Appassionata, which they fall in love with, buy and with
little money and many tribulations restore with the aim
of producing the finest olive oil.
In this entirely new book Carol and Michel have documented their life on the
olive farm: the highs and lows of harvesting and pressing, the constant concern
about water, the adoption of animals, and the anxious search for ways to diversify.
Local food and wine, customs, markets and fairs, friends and characterful neighbours,
the whole Provençal way of life, are richly recounted and stunningly illustrated.
What comes across is her love affair with a farm and a way of life that is utterly
captivating...[an] exquisite collection’
