This is the magic of Monaco, here all standards and norms are turned upside down. In Paris, when you want to buy a bar of the exquisite old fashioned French chocolate bar “Maison Bonnat”, you go to “La Grande Epicerie de Paris“, one of the most selective, expensive, and sophisticated food markets on the planet (it is...
Marché Provencal in Antibes

Marché Provencal in Antibes

The covered market in Antibes is nestled in the center of the old walled city inside a charming iron structure.  It is a stellar location, and the tiny city centre is remarkably untouched, although surrounded by hideous developments from the modern era.  Segolene and I really enjoyed walking along the ramparts from our car to...
Yes we Cannes!

Yes we Cannes!

Sego and I are back on track exploring some of the markets we have not been to on the French side of the Riviera.  This week we visited the Forville market in Cannes, a pretty suprising visit it was.  We were expecting something a little smaller than the Cours Saleya market in Nice, and what...

Right under your nose

After living in Monaco for almost a year, it’s funny I never thought to post anything about the market at La Condamine.  Sure, it’s a bit of a shame that this market is not world class. Given the clientele, it should be as great as Eataly, The Ferry Building in San Francisco or any other...

Chayotes in Cagnes-sur-mer

Joshua, Segolene and I headed out to do our shopping to get inspired for our holiday recipes, and we popped over to Cagnes-sur-Mer.  This market located near Vence was suggested to us by chef Christophe Dufau of Les Bacchanales restaurant.  He had warned us that the market building is currently being rebuilt, and that for...
