Travel highlights: French food

Wednesday, April 3, 2013

The Cote d'Azur travel was a great opportunity to taste some delicious French food, from the traditional you could find in the entire France to the regional of Provence and Cote d'Azur.

This "travel highlights" post will show you a collection of recommended dishes you should really try. An exploration of Europe means not only discovering cities but also its culture and its food. In this case it was really influenced by the Mediterranean cuisine. This is a list, not a chart...

Ratatouille: one of the most famous dishes of Cote d'Azur, created in Nice, is prepared with peppers, courgettes, aubergines, tomatoes and onions, cooked with olive oil and Provence herbs.

Most of these courses were served during a dinner in the restaurant La Cote a l'Os in Antibes, strongly recommended for its value for money. The entire menu plus wine and water, a set of sweets and coffee costed only 33 Euros per person. A great deal and a tasty dinner.

There are also other courses, even sandwiches, that are really tasty. So do not stop trying to taste the typical dishes.

The next post will be the final trip reports of the Cote d'Azur travel.

As I am nearing the end of my workday, I shouldn't have looked at all these wonderful dishes. I am so hungry now! The warm goat cheese salad with m√Ęche looks amazing. It does look like you had no trouble finding good food! ~ David

Lol David! Here you are the expert! Since it's a Mediterranean cuisine, it's really similar to the Italian one with some little differencies. Anyway, I really loved that food and also when I shared this post, I started being hungry was really great to stop by that restaurant in Antibes and discover some of these delicious courses :-)
