Wood-oven trail, stop #2: Socca in Vence

Posted Wednesday, December 16th, 2009

I took the bus up into the hills from Nice. It wound up through the hills on a beautiful sunny morning and brought me to the end of the line in the little town of Vence, where I’d come to look for a socca stand that David Lebovitz mentioned in his blog.

Happily, it turned out that the trip was more than worth it. Laurent Rouvier’s little socca stand is a small-is-better marvel and his socca is light, tasty and satisfying. M. Rouvier is a happy and warm-hearted cook who obviously enjoys what he’s doing. Judging by the number of people stopping by for socca and a chat, his customers enjoy it too.
