Chef Francois de Mélogue Visits the Côte d’Azur
A Guest Post by Chef and Cookbook Author François de Mélogue.
“Cuisine of the Sun cookbook is a savory collection of over 60 classic and reimagined Provençal recipes peppered with anecdotes that will cast a ray of sunshine onto your plate.”

Read on to chuckle at his experiences with French parking in hilltop towns, discovering a pétanque festival and sourcing delicious ingredients in Nice.
Their day-tripping centred almost entirely around food and markets including Nice for socca and Marseille for bouillabaisse. François de Mélogue tasted AOC goat cheese from Banon, sipped Bandol wine, savoured the lamb from Sisteron and much more. Read this post for travel and shopping tips from his sejour in Provence.
