Recipes - Provencal food

The beautiful Provence is full of colorful products that assert themselves in the kitchen. A rich and delicious cuisine based on olive oil, fragrant herbs, garlic and various herbs. Provençal cuisine is characterized by the abundant use of ingeniously associated vegetables to compensate for the lack of meat, too expensive in the poor Provence of yesteryear. However, before enjoying a Provençal dish as it should be, it is important to find the right products that will give life to our culinary creations. It is in this process that our local producers intervene. So ready for a 100% Provençal meal idea (from appetizer to dessert)?


For a Provençal aperitif we prepare our eggplant caviar (recipe below) and we buy the anchoïade and the tapenade at Catrice Gourmet. Serve with croutons or vegetables.

Finally, to end on a sweet note, nothing better than Calissons de Provence from Angèle Confiserie accompanied by white figs from Salernes that can be found at the Lou Figoun association (depending on the season). If you want to eat white figs all year round then go to the Chocolaterie Lisandre which offers semi-candied or candied figs.

And here is an idea for a 100% Provençal meal with local products. Obviously, we have not mentioned the drinks, it remains at your convenience, however nothing better than a pastis or a glass of rosé to accompany this meal. To know our favorite winegrowers, visit our blog article here
