The Best Sweets and Treats of Provence

Provence, with its sun-soaked fruits and nuts, aromatic herbs and perfumed honeys and, not least, its exotic North African influences, is perfectly poised to produce intensely flavoured, wholly irresistible treats, and a tempting array of them can be sampled at the Market of 13 Desserts, which runs in Aix en Provence from 16 to 24 December.

The market is geared to the great provençal Christmas Eve supper, of which any or all of the sweetmeats mentioned here can form part - though of course they can be enjoyed all year round. These are some of the best regional specialities from all over Provence. Click here to read more.
