Mangia in Nice at l’Italie a Table
Bless the Italians who seem to be rushing to the French Riviera at the end of May every year.
In brief, a chance to stroll along the Promenade des Anglais (the eastern side), and be accosted with as many delights from the spectrum of Italian cuisine – as you can possibly imagine.
The dates for this year’s edition of l’Italie à Table, in Nice, are May 28-31, 2015, a chance to sample as much Italian food as you can justify.
Protected from the elements by stylish pavilions, a load of stalls offer an absolute wealth of the best of Italian food…..come hungry and with your wallet, never mind the Prosecco – bring on the artisanal beer, ice cream, wonderful olives, pasta, jarred anchovies, rustic bread, sausage, cheese.
Not at all budget busting – there’s copious amounts of food being offered for free to taste, and for example, the mighty slab of pig in bread above is just €3.50 or €5 with a glass of red wine.
Stay in Nice – just after the Cannes Film Festival and before the summer rush of sun bunnies – and get a not bad a deal for a hotel – seriously don’t bother with breakfast.
Your friends in the Mercantour from Space Between intend to be there on the 28th, before dashing home for catering and walking duty!
