All About France #25

Posted by on in All About France linky

Welcome to All About France the monthly blog linky all about France!   Simply put, this is the place to link up blog posts with a French theme.  And today is extra special as we've been running for 2 whole years.  Happy anniversary #AllAboutFrance!  Thank you to all the amazing bloggers who have linked up over this time, I really believe we've made a supportive community linked by our love/experience of (or interest in) France and I know that many regulars have made solid online relationships within this group.  I'd love to hear any anecdotes or stories about the people you've connected with here.  Personally I think I've met 6 of you in the flesh and count another 10 or so as friends even though we haven't actually physically met, such is the nature of the blogging world and modern friendships.

Top 8 must-try foods from Provence

Posted by on in Food & Drink

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.
