Vegetarian Holiday Menu Inspired by Provencal Flavours

Holiday Menu for Vegetarians #TastesofProvence @CocoaandLavender

Sometimes you just need to go green for the holidays. This tastes of Provence Vegetarian Holiday Menu will impress even the die-hard carnivores in the crowd.

Martine at Goût et Voyage leads off with her tiny zucchini cakes (you can also make these with spinach) a savoury snack with cocktails. Master chef Gérald Passedat’s version of ratatouille combines classic Provencal ingredients (zucchini, eggplant, tomato) in a beautiful tian form. The Cocoa & Lavender vegetable terrine adds colour and a touch of curry to the main course. And finally, our friends at Mirabeau Wine offer up a dessert for chocolate lovers made with five ingredients.

David's first trip to France took place when he was 14, and he returned as often as possible thereafter. However, it wasn't until his 50th birthday that he finally made it south to Provence. The beauty, history, charm, warmth, cuisine, and - of course - the rosé wines captured his heart. He shares his Provençal recipes here on Perfectly Provence, and his food and wine pairings monthly on the Provence WineZine.

David is a firm believer that sharing a meal with friends around the table is one of life's greatest pleasures. And if it happens to be in Provence, all the better!

      David: All four of the holiday menus that you created are perfect for holiday entertaining. I agree the vegetarian one is a fiesta of colours. Thank you again for these beautiful collections for every taste: meat lovers, poultry, seafood and the vegetarian one.
