Provence is a mecca for specialty foods. Whichever season you choose to visit, our region offers the possibility of endless culinary encounters. Provençal cuisine is sunny, fragrant, generous, mindful of tradition and open to the world. Here, in the kitchen, mixing ingredients is an art, and the opportunities to pair food and wine abound. The base of Provencal cuisine is a tasty trilogy of tomato, garlic and olive oil, which are aggregated by the essential herbs of thyme, rosemary, sage and basil. With this colourful base, Provençal cuisine has developed many specialties. On the Provencal table, you’ll find of course the olive which delights gourmets by itself. As an aperitif, toasts of green or black olive tapenade are the best companies for a glass of rosé or white wine.
