The cuisine of Provence boasts a unique fusion of flavours, blending the rich complexity of French food with rustic simplicity borrowed from neighbouring Italy. With countless eateries and shops, Nice is bursting with this authentic flavour, if you know where to look. Make your way to the heart of the Old Town, known as Vieux Nice, to meet your local foodie guide. Learn about the area’s history and Italian influence as you wander through narrow lanes and past charming sidewalk cafes.
Along the way, stop in an assortment of local markets and specialty food shops hand-picked for their variety and authenticity. Sample Provençal cuisine such as a Pissaladière onion tart, stuffed vegetables called petits Farcis and a Niçoise salad sandwich served on fresh baked pain de campagne. Taste locally produced cheeses, olive oil, and wine, plus a sweet almond candy known as Calisson. During tastings, chat with your guide and shop proprietors to learn how to incorporate local flavour into your cooking at home.
In between delicious dishes, visit other local highlights including a Baroque Church, the colourful Cours Saleya flower market and Castle Hill for fantastic sea and city views. After walking, nibbling and sipping, say farewell to your guide near Nice’s Place Rossetti.
