Panisses

Oh les Panisses de l’Estaque!

Famous food from the north of Marseille (a port called “L’Estaque”). If you do not have much time to eat or if you prefer to have something “on the go” while visiting the city (maybe during our free walking tour!), this is the best option 🙂

You can find them almost everywhere in the city.

What is it? Could not be easiest:

Get chickpea flour, mix it with water in order to make a paste and fry it, or cook it in the oven.

The most typical froms are: rolls 20 cm long and 7 cm in diameter or discs 10 cm in diameter and about 2 cm thick.

Please, eat them while they are hot, they are much luch better that way.

Normally sold by the dozen or half dozen, it will make the deal if you are not very hungry or even is you are starving. Try it with a salad or the start of a meal.

Bon appétit!
