I Sea Food And Eat It: The Bouillabaisse Diet

A trip to Marseille, France would be incomplete without a taste of the simple bouillabaisse soup. This oily, bony, and filling fish soup originated in Marseille and literally means bolhir (to boil) and abaissar (simmer). The emulsified rust-colored broth warms your throat and the delicate fishy taste lingers in your mouth after swallowing--it’s not a taste welcomed by everyone. Be careful to watch your slurp! It’s considered rude in France.

Marseille (A.K.A. The City Completely Covered in Graffiti)

I think Marseille sounds so luxurious and French. For some reason, I've always pictured Marseille filled with baguette-carrying men and women, art museums around every corner, and quiet cobblestone streets between historic towering villas.

Wrong.
