Coq au Vin on the Côte d'Azur?
My mother and I have been staying near Vence for a couple of weeks. She has fond memories of Coq au Vin eaten in Paris half a century ago, and would like to try it again. So far we've eaten in about 15 different restaurants (all listed in the Guide Gantié) but not one of them had Coq au Vin on the menu. Is this a dish one only finds in Burgundy or Paris? Wrong time of year? Or not really French, like onion soup? Mother will be leaving Nov. 7, so any quick tips would be appreciated!
BTW I loved Chibois in Grasse and Clovis in Tourrettes-sur-Loup.
Coq au vin is French. For that matter, so is onion soup.
Much of French food is regional. Paris is a melting pot and will have a selection of dishes from most regions. It does not surprise me that won't find coq au vin on the Mediterranean. The kind of coq au vin you are thinking of probably comes form Burgundy, though there are variations elsewhere.
