Salade Niçoise, meaning salad from Nice, is served in restaurants all over the world making it undoubtedly the most famous of our local gastronomic specialities, but have you heard of my Top 3 snacks? When visiting the Côte d'Azur you've just got to try them. Socca, a large chickpea crêpe, cooked on a copper dish about a metre wide in a wood-fired oven, consisting of chickpea flour, olive oil, salt and water. While cooking, the flames should just lick the surface without grilling it too much; there's an art to perfecting this delicious pancake. It should be very thin and slightly burnt on the top. Socca is served in little scrapings, piping hot with lots of pepper and ideally a glass of cold rosé!
