Chapeau Monsieur

Pissaladière et Bière

It all started when our friend Anne-Marie prepared this delicious Provençal pizza for us last weekend...

Today I arrived at home to the most pleasant aroma of pissaladière crisping in the oven. The combination of caramelized onions, anchovies, olives and fresh thyme were married with a little twist from Jesee ... artichokes and capers. Jesee's interpretation of this classic from Nice, resulted in an unbelievable mouth orgasm.

As we relished this taste of home, memories of lavender fields and pétanque came rushing through - perhaps it's time to dig out the copy of A Year in Provence for another read?
