Antibes (Juan-les-Pins), France Cuisine | Where to Eat

Popular Local Cuisine: As part of Provence, the French Riviera (Cote d'Azur) has a cuisine which is closely akin to the fragrant and rustic cuisine of its region, only with more of an emphasis on seafood and a decidedly more sophisticated approach. Still the traditional ingredients predominate, but with a more refined preparation and presentation and certainly with a higher price point. The most typical ingredients are garlic and olive oil, with fish, tomatoes and the green herbs of the countryside enlivening the flavors of local cooking. The iconic of Provencal recipe is Bouillabaisse, the fish stew made with saffron and other herbs. The most traditional Bouillabaisse is served with the seafood in a separate dish. The hearty eggplant and summer squash of local farms are blended with tomatoes, onions, garlic and basil to create the typical vegetable medley of Ratatouille. Mixing olive oil to make a basic mayonnaise and adding fresh crushed garlic the locals create Aioli, a sauce that can enhance the local bread or even cooked courses. Courses served a la Provencal come with a garlicky tomato sauce. For an appetizer, spread some olive based tapenade onto fresh bread.

The wines of Provence are certainly underrated and lesser known than their cousins from Burgundy. Especially popular are the young rose wines which are served as an accompaniment with many fixed price menus. Pastis is an anise-flavored liqueur favored on warm afternoons as an aperitif.
