A trip to Marseille for an authentic Bouillabaisse

Contributor blog post by Michel:

We had been talking about throwing a Provence Party in our backyard with a traditional Bouillabaisse for some time. We had even told the neighbors it would take place in August when we returned from Sablet. While we were in Provence,I wanted to go to Marseille and have a Bouillabaisse in one of the restaurants renown for the dish and see how it is presented to diners.

…Continue reading here for Michel’s description of their day in Marseille (France’s second largest city), where the Mediterranean has always been a source of life and economy for the city since the days of the Phoceans. The sea has long provided fishermen with enough fish to fill their nets, and enough scraps to make Bouillabaisse.

Michel’s Marseille restaurant suggestion is below (make a reservation!):

Chez Fonfon Restaurant
140 Rue du Vallon des Auffes
