Okay, so last night Gabriel took us on a tour of Nice; home of the mesclun lettuce and nicoise salad. We toured farmers markets laden with gorgeous produce, olive oil farms and were introduced to the mouth-watering street food Socca.
I’ve highlighted the link, because if you were interested in giving a recipe for Socca a go at home, like me, you would have been a tiny bit disappointed because the showcase recipe for Nice is not Socca, but Ratatouille with lemon chantilly.
However, I am sure this is going to be a great recipe in its own right (although I am a bit dubious about the lemon chantilly combination). In the spirit of the project I am going to give it a go tonight and perhaps knock up some Socca later in the week when (if) I find a spare moment.
Tune in later this evening to see how it went…
