Avignon is the quintessential Provençal town— and that goes for its cuisine as well. It's the essence of local, seasonal dining that makes foodies (and the rest of us!) swoon with delight, and one step inside the famous Les Halles market in town makes even the most amateur of chefs wish they could have somehow packed a kitchen in their suitcase.

What can visitors expect when filling their tummies in Avignon? Snacks and other pre-meal treats include cured olives and tapenades, as well as crudites with aioli, a garlicky type of mayonnaise dip. Main courses could be anything from a market-fresh salad piled high with goodies to a bull steak, while for dessert, the local nougat, melon or cheeses would each do the trick. Don't forget a great Côtes du Rhône to wash it all down!

To learn more about Avignon food specialties without stinking up the hotel room, consider a Provençal cooking class that features a guided tour of the markets as well as the chance to learn authentic local recipes.
