Cooking Vacation in Provence,
A culinary vacation in Provence means not just sampling your own cooking but trying the great cuisine of Provence in the many small restaurants and mom and pop eateries located in out-of-the way villages.
The locals know where the villa with the hidden restaurant is and they are glad to share their favorites.
If you can find a restaurant with a limited menu, perhaps no more than three options and two that are variations of the first, this usually means that the chef has shopped for the day and will have picked up the ripest produce and the freshest meat or fish. Rousillon's Terrace Restaurant for instance, the stuffed zucchini are made for that day and the salmon is fresh from the vendor.
