Do you know the soups of Provence?
Aigo boulido or “boiled water” in French is Provençal soup prepared only with sage leaves and boiled garlic. It was originally part of the dishes served on Christmas Eve in Provence but today is part of the diet after festivities.
Pistou soup is a summer vegetable soup, with pasta, served with pesto (mixture of garlic, olive oil and basil).
The bouillabaisse (Provencal Occitan bolabaissa, bolh, “he boils” and lowered, “he lowers”, speaking of fire) is a traditional Marseille dish of fish from the Mediterranean. This stew, cooked in water or white wine, garlic, olive oil or saffron, is served in two stages: soup, then fish. The fish soup is eaten with bread croutons, spread with rust, wet with olive oil and boiled potatoes.
