Provencal and Nice cooking.

Simple recipe ideas, full of sunshine. The resulting cooking is, like our terroir, a gay, sunny, colorful cuisine, full of scents and aromatics. It’s an enchantment for the palate. I propose simple recipes, which I tested myself. Provençal regional cooking has a very rich culture and gastronomy. Crossed by the Rhone, the region has a multitude of agricultural resources, which offers an abundance of flavors and diversity of products. In addition, it is located on a zone of paramount influence: the Mediterranean, which is characterized by a large consumption of fruits, vegetables and wine.
On the Nice gastronomic side, the influence of Italian cooking is often perceived. Anyway, take your time for all these recipes. But, never forget that the Provençal has a clock in the stomach and here we eat at noon!
Enjoy your meal.
