November in Provence. Bring on the chestnuts! Have you ever had crème de marrons (chestnut cream)? It’s like a gourmet version of Nutella. How about chestnut honey? Now that’s different!
Are you in the holiday spirit yet? The massive amounts of high-quality chocolate boxes at the supermarkets are tempting me… Has anyone made a Christmas cake already? Spiced German cookies? It feels a little early for me but the first Christmas market is on this weekend in Maussane. You’ll find two of my favourite Christmas markets in Provence during this month; the Foire du Gras and the Alsace-Sénas market.
Here is my selection of some of the most interesting November events in Provence, focusing on the Bouches du Rhône region.
