The visit will include delights such as pastry and chocolate, fine foods, cheeses and wines. Your culinary adventure will also take you to “les Halles” the harbour’s colourful and authentic fish and seafood market. On market days (Wednesday), the true scents and flavours of southern France will be abundant where you will discover seasonal produce and how to use it at home.
Nancy loves to write about her food experiences in France. Have a look at her posts on the “Romance of Roquefort“, “Cheese Etiquette“, “Who’s got the World’s Best Oysters?” and more on Barefoot Bloggers special section. Absolutely Southern French Food and Etiquette.
“Nancy McGee has created a small marvel.Rather than the traditional tours of sights she gives you precious insight to the culture and people of Sete,through the medium of its unique culinary delights.Into her experiential tour she also weaves fascinating stories that bring this unusual town to life.A must for anyone who loves to get beneath the surface of a place.”
