Food Market

In terms of gastronomic delights, Nice does not fall short of the refinement so characteristic of the French cuisine. The gastronomy typical of Cote d’Azur (and Provence, for that matter) with Mediterranean influences including seafood, vegetables and fruit.

Another notable feature of the regional cuisine observed in Nice refers to the extensive use of a wide range of herbs, such as bay leaves, basil, thyme, oregano and, in moderation but constantly, garlic. Olive oil is an ever present ingredient, and this is precisely what distinguishes the cuisine on Cote d’Azur from all the other French gastronomical traditions. The prestige and the extent of the use of olive oil in the French Riviera cuisine is reflected by the fact this region is one of the main suppliers of olive oil in France.
