Pissaladière [pee-sah-lah-DYEHR] n. Tart topped with anchovies, onions, and olives – a specialty of Nice, France

This is a case of Provencal and Mediterranean cooking meeting up at the beach – it’s a specialty of the beach towns along the Cote d’Azur. It’s also an instance of the cross-pollination between French and Italian foods that occurs in this area, with the seafood, Parmesan cheese and Nicoise olives all playing their part.
