Liz LordMarkets in Provence and Cote d'AzurTaste: Food & Drink

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.

Provence Market via Liz LordIn the sun, at 11.30 in the morning, a bottle of rosé Prosecco seems like a very good idea indeed – a super “firsty” and guaranteed to gird the loins for much,  much more.

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.

Liz Lord and her husband Mel Jones have been living in the Mercantour National Park for the past 15 years.

Most people would already be saying “where?”, but in fact the Mercantour remains a delightfully unknown area straddling the Franco-Italian border, in the Alpes-Maritimes. Liz and Mel live just an hour North of Nice – so can enjoy the best of best worlds, their life concentrated in their home in Berthemont les Bains, yet being able to enjoy the hubbub on the coast when the need for culture arises.

Choosing to decamp from the UK (and their “normal” corporate lives!) after a chance encounter with their current home in 2001, they now earn their living by renting out their two gites and offering walking and adventure holidays at Space Between.

With the experience of ex-pat life, setting up a small business in France, house renovation, and land and horse management!, with a keen interest in food and wine and travel, Liz has much to contribute for those interested in a new life in France or with a zest to dip their toe in the water on holiday.
