This is the delightful moment before a meal, often shared with family or friends, and on which, as we all know, it is easy to become hooked! While its original function was to whet the appetite, the aperitif today is above all a moment of pleasure.
In Nice, the quintessential aperitif includes a good portion of Socca or pissaladière and olives or tapenade.
Socca is a thin galette made with chickpea flour, cooked in a wood-fired oven on a round copper plate. Its ingredients? All natural! Judge for yourself: chickpea flour, water, salt, pepper, and olive oil. And that’s all!
As chickpeas are naturally gluten-free, socca is ideal for the gluten-intolerant as well as for vegetarians and vegans!
Socca gets its authentic crispy texture and smoky flavour from being cooked at high temperatures over a pine or olive wood fire.
It’s best enjoyed piping hot from the oven, with a little black pepper and eaten with your fingers!
Socca is deliciously crisp on the top and soft on the inside and you quickly become #SoccAddict
It is a little treat you can enjoy at any time of the day, especially as an aperitif. In Nice, it’s a real institution! Even more so now that it can be enjoyed in the form of chips or at home thanks to the SoccApéro® mix! Try it. You’ll love it!
