Souvenirs from Provence

From the producer to the bag

What's the best thing to bring back from your holiday in Provence? And what souvenir from the South should we take if we're visiting friends or family elsewhere? We won't be offering you a classic little tour of the souvenir shops this time, so let's head off to meet the local producers and craftspeople instead!

" Place your bets ! "

Las Vegas, Monaco and Atlantic City are simply overrated. On the other hand, Carry-le-Rouet, Cassis, La Ciotat and Aix-en-Provence all have lots of sightseeing attractions - plus casinos!

Goat's Cheese

Goat's Cheese

Whether it's served hot with a salad, used to crown a cheese platter, or savoured fresh with honey or olive oil, goat's cheese is an absolute culinary must. Provence's dry, sunny climate is perfect for goat breeding -and that's lucky for us!

Candied Fruit

Candied Fruit

A gourmet treat…

Provence has been famed for its candied fruit from time immemorial. In the early 16th century, the region was fairly impoverished. Fruit grew here in abundance, but much of it was lost every year.

(Re)conquering Provence

Can anyone resist an almond? Everyone raves about these little nuggets of happiness you can savour every which way – fresh, dried, whole, grilled, sliced, ground or made into a cream or milk!

Figs

Figs

Francis lived happily close beside his tree...

Picked ripe from the tree, figs are simply to die for. They can also be scattered on trays and left to dry in the sun for 3 days: "That's the best way to keep your figs all winter – we serve figs at Christmas as one of Provence's famous 13 Desserts," smiles Jacqueline Honoré.

Quince

Quince

A story that will make you turn to jelly...

As yellow as sunshine and as warm as a winter fireplace... The quince isn't very pretty, but the people of Provence love it. You could even say that a passion has been born between this irregular-shaped fruit, somewhat resembling a dented, rustic pear and our lovers of jams, jellies and pastes.
