About Local Produce in Nice

The wonderful Mediterranean climates makes this area the perfect place to grow things such as olives and lemons. Both of which are heavily incorporated into local dishes.

Being on the Mediterranean coast, seafood is obviously a big part of the local diet with many typical dishes based on fish or crustaceans, with sardines and anchovies being particularly popular. French cheeses and wines are of course staple throughout the country and this part of the south coast is no different with wonderful local rose wine and goats cheese making the perfect aperitif.
