What to Expect
Meet your guide in the heart of Old Nice, where your small group—limited to just 10 people—is waiting to explore the legendary food traditions of the picturesque historic center. Your guide points out local eateries and charming sidewalk cafes, as you listen to the history and culture of the French Riviera. But most of all, you learn by tasting: sample a variety of regional delicacies with stops at hand-picked markets and specialty food shops. Dishes vary depending on the season, so you are guaranteed a fresh variety. You might be invited to sample a pissaladiere onion tart, a staple of Provençal cuisine, or local delights, such as a torta de blea, a chard and chestnut pie. You even learn how to make your own authentic salade Niçoise, along with other tips on incorporating local flavors into your cooking. In between tastings, get a firsthand peek at the charms of the Old City with visits to a baroque church, Cours Saleya flower market, and Castle Hill for a seaside panorama.
