The Cooking School: Les Petits Farcis, Nice

Start your day at the Cours Saleya market.
Rosa will introduce you to the small producers. The fruit and vegetables are not as uniformly shaped and the variety not as great, but every ingredient we’ll find here is firmly rooted in the region and much of it is organic.
Then, you will make your way to the Petits Farcis cooking studio, where everyone will play a role in preparing the meal.
The atmosphere will be relaxed! A couple of hours later you will enjoy an authentic Niçois meal and toast your efforts with a glass of rosé (or, if you prefer, an intriguing local red or white wine). This will certainly be the highlight of your French Riviera vacation.

The City: Nice

The most famous town of the French Riviera, a combination of France & Italy
One of the most magnificent bay of the Mediterranean, Bay of Angels
A vibrant old town, with narrow cobblestone streets and pastel-hued buildings
A daily market on pedestrian street Cours Saleya where you will find fresh produce & flowers
Chickpea Pancake, La Socca. You have to try it from one of the street vendors: “Socca, socca, caouda que bullie!” – meaning “Socca, socca, scorching hot socca!”
