This is the most memorable dish my Father used to cook. It is a challenging dish, but definitely worth it. The original Bouillabaisse (“bouï abaisso” in Provençal) was from the Calanque coast between Marseilles and Toulon. Although called a soup, this is really a main dish, a full meal in itself. I remember going with my Dad to the old port in Nice, very early in the morning, just as the fishermen were coming back with their catch and Dad would buy the fish straight off the boat.
