About Local Cuisine in Provence

The cuisine of Provence is the result of the warm, dry Mediterranean climate; the rugged landscape, good for grazing sheep and goats, the abundance of seafood on the south coast and of course the 'black diamonds', truffles. The basic ingredients are olives and olive oil, garlic, lamb and goat, chickpeas, local fruits, such as grapes, peaches, apricots, strawberries, cherries, and the famous melons of Cavaillon.
