A trip to Nice should never be done without trying socca, a type of bread made with chickpea flour and roasted with a wood fire. I’ve never been able to try it before but insisted we try it this time and I really liked it. You have to wait in line if you are in Vieux Nice, the old section, but it’s worth it.

Here’s my plate of socca. It’s very good-sort of crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. It can be a sort of hors d’ourvre, but it was my main dish with a glass of wine.
