Sanary-sur-Mer Cuisine | Where to Eat

Local Specialties - Roasted fish, shellfish, lobster and aioli. The cuisine of Provence is based on the sea and the rugged terrain of the region. 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 recipes 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 mayonnaisse 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. The reds and roses from near Bandol and the whites from Cassis are particularly well-regarded. The fresh tasting roses from the entire area are the most popular. Pastis is an anise-flavored liqueur favored on warm afternoons as an aperitif.
