The Lou Messugo Blog - life in the south of France from a British/Australian TCK's perspective, bringing you French culture, travel on the Côte d'Azur and beyond, expat issues and a little bit of je ne sais quoi all mixed up with a hefty dose of photography.
A significant part of any visitor’s time in Provence Côte d'Azur is likely to be taken up by food. Whether you’re eating in restaurants or cooking for yourself, either way you’re sure to find you spend a serious amount of time savouring and delighting in the wealth of fresh produce and local specialities. Long lazy lunches on a shady terrace, with the sound of cicadas chirping, washed down with plenty of chilled rosé is one of the things Provence is all about. Visiting markets and choosing your sun-ripened fruit and veg, golden olive oil, fresh goats cheese and local saucisson is another must do. With this in mind I thought I’d put together a list of 8 Provençal dishes any vistor to Provence Côte d'Azur has just got to try.
Let's talk about "Lou Messugo". Sometimes I get the feeling people are confused about Lou Messugo. What / who is it exactly? Perhaps I’m too wary of promoting my own business on this blog that it’s not actually clear that Lou Messugo is first and foremost a gîte, a holiday apartment, a vacation rental, a self-catering holiday let with pool (sleeps 4), call it what you will, it’s a damn fine place to spend some time in …. And it is also a blog (but it isn't me!)
