January... when days are short and skies mainly grey, it's wonderful to make an escape to the little fishing village of Bouzigues, famous for its oysterbeds and seaside restaurants. Last week, we turned Wednesday into Sunday, and went to enjoy the catch of the day along with a fresh breeze from the sea.
'Le Grand Bleu' is our favorite. The service is warm and the food excellent, no wonder it's always packed... don't forget to make a reservation in advance.
Although it's a fish restaurant, I can never resist having Pimentos as a starter...they are so delicious.
The perfect wine to go with it..the local Picpoul de Pinet
And of course aioli, olive oil and 'Fleur de Sel' salt from the Camargue
Beautiful soft light after lunch
