Learn how to cook a Pissaladiere
To celebrate Bastille Day, join us for a fun cooking class and virtual tour of Nice by tuning in to our Facebook page at 7pm AEST on Bastille Day, Wednesday 14 July 2021.
First, food entrepreneur Rosa Jackson , owner of Les Petits Farcis , will teach you how to make a classic Niçoise dish – pissaladière. Somewhere between a pizza and a tart, the pissaladière is the ultimate comfort food, which can be enjoyed all year around. Cut into squares, it is also the perfect food to pack for a picnic on the beach.
Then, the director of the Nice Côte d'Azur Metropolitan tourism office and his lovely team will take you on a tour of some of Nice’s top attractions. You’ll be able to relive your Niçoise memories or decide whether Nice is worthy of your bucket list (spoiler alert: it is).
Discover the city of Nice
What do you get when you combine French culture, alpine mountains and sunny beaches, old-world charm and a buzzing atmosphere?
This might sound like the stuff of dreams, but not for the city of Nice. Known as the capital of the chic yet relaxed French Riviera, it’s no wonder this diverse and unique city is one of France’s most popular tourist destinations.
Alongside its Mediterranean climate, fascinating history and vibrant art and entertainment scene is the local gastronomy. French and Italian influences come together in perfect harmony to create fresh, flavourful Niçoise cuisine (and don’t get us started on the wine).
