There is more rubbish spoken about the recipe for Bouillabaisse, than there is even for Cassoulet.
To add to all this rubbish here is the 100% authentic version; complete with the accent required to make it. I don't seem able to post the video itself, but just click on the link.... you won't be sorry!
You can't argue with this bloke....Enjoy.
The photo looks more like a proper meal than a soup.ReplyDelete
Oh, maybe that's what bouillabaisse is all about...
I didn't go to the link, pressed for time today at the computer.
It's both; you start with the soup, then finish with the fish etc.Delete
I saw Rick Stein do a Cassoulet the other night on his old French barge trip. He made it look and sound very simple. Perhaps I will see him do a bouillabaissse when he reaches Marseille.ReplyDelete
What an accent; it reeks of The Old Port, and sunshine!Delete
I wasn't able to look at the video unfortunately,Delete
You should be able to see it, it comes through facebook.Delete
That is probably why.Delete
I loved that Rick Stein series! Must try to seek it out as I've not seen it in years.Delete
Specialites de Marseille.I love it.ReplyDelete
They were all drinking Pastis, and no doubt all played Pétanque afterwards.Delete
What is the milky looking liquid they are drinking in the tiny glass?ReplyDelete
Greetings Maria x
Pastis; the drink of Marseilles. Lovely in Summer.Delete
Reminded me of eating bouillabaisse in Marseilles when I went on the "exchange" with Vincent in the late 50's.ReplyDelete
I wonder what happened to him. Do you still write?Delete
No, I did manage to get in touch with his father before he died but not Vincent.Delete
I was tempted to order one after reading a poem called Bouillabaise. It came in a big pot like you'd use for an indoor plant. It was hot and filling. Ideal on a winters day.ReplyDelete
They can be very different, from left-over cheap fish with a few spuds, to a selection of exotic fish with a variety of seasonal vegetables.Delete
Sorry Cro - I love fish and eat a lot of it - but my fishmonger deals with heads and tails. I can't bear the guilt of eatinc a fish with its accusing eyes looking at me.ReplyDelete
"Guilt"? My mother (about your age) used to suck the eyes out of fish served whole. Which made my father's [eyes] roll; her children torn between admiring her audacity or plain recoil.Delete
I never bother what food looks like; for me it's only what it tastes like.Delete

Does that mean you can only see the video if you have a facebook account? I didn't know. Sorry.Delete
Haha, this is great! All the modern shows with hipster men bonding over the cooking pot seem so contrived when you see this. All you need for a proper meal is one guy in charge to shake the pot and a gang of sous-chefs to smoke, drink and make agreeable noises around you!ReplyDelete
Exactly. A wonderful glimpse of everyday life in Marseilles. And what an accent!Delete
