The cuisine of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region is known for its fresh and flavorful ingredients, which are influenced by the region's Mediterranean climate and proximity to the sea. It is strongly characterised by the use of olive oil, garlic, tomatoes, herbs, and seafood. Popular dishes include bouillabaisse (a fish stew), ratatouille (a vegetable stew), socca (a chickpea pancake), and pissaladière (a pizza-like dish with caramelized onions and anchovies). For those with a sweet tooth, you can try local treats such as honey, calissons (candies made from almonds and melon), chocolate mendiants, and quince paste. The wine region in Provence boasts an exceptional variety of wines due to the favourable climate and soil conditions. The region is especially known for its rosé wines, which pair perfectly with the local cuisine.
