Episode 4: Southern France

Summary

Si King and Dave Myers explore the culinary delights of Provence in southern France. Starting out in Marseille, they meet a Moroccan woman who runs a welcome centre where immigrants can eat together - and who makes a fish stew to die for. Travelling west, they learn about the culinary influence of the Romans who conquered Europe 2,000 years ago, try a breakfast of pastry filled with spicy octopus, and dine with a Catalan farmer and his family on a regional speciality of barbecued snails.

Rating: 3 out of 5.

In another chunk of sunny escapism the two dudes motor to Marseille in lovely warm sunshine, making a few diversions along the way.

They stop at a market full of luscious produce (“We’re in fruity heaven!”) and meet a smashing lady, who’s received France’s highest honour, the Légion d’Honneur, for her work helping immigrants to settle and integrate.

She also happens to be a splendid cook, which sends Dave Myers and Si King into raptures as they bestow grateful hugs and kisses. As ever in these sorts of foodie-travel series the best things always come from street stalls, and the pair are in deep-friend delight when they eat something that translates as “fried willy”. Say what you see…
