I had so many things to say about the terrorist attack on Nice. I decided to share none of it here. Except maybe for this: THEY WILL NOT GET OUR JOIE DE VIVRE! I swear they won’t!
So vive la France, vive Nice and vive food and wine and sex and laughter and friendship…
I made salade niçoise for lunch today, following the original recipe from Escofier himself. It couldn’t be more simple and certainly shouldn’t be more complicated (or sophisticated). Provence is all about simple ingredients and authenticity!
- Baby greens
- Small black olives (olives niçoises) kept in oil
- Baby artichokes
- Hard boiled eggs (still warm)
- Green spring onions
- Extra virgin olive oil
The following pictures were taken in Nice when I was there last fall. Truly one of my favorite cities in France!
