Sommaire / Summary
Pan-bagnat of Nice is a typical sandwich.
Preparation of the pan-bagnat of Nice
Between two pieces of bread (most often round and bathed in garlicky olive oil), we add the ingredients of the niçoise salad: tomatoes, egg, anchovies, olive and olive oil.
By the way, the word pan-bagnat comes from bagnar (in Provencal) which means to bathe, to wet. This bread is indeed wet with garlic olive oil.
Beware, for some Niceans, it is sacrilege to modify the traditional recipe. But what traditional recipe? This one has largely evolved since the origin.
Indeed, we can find pans-bagnats containing chicken, arugula, mayonnaise, etc. These varieties depend on the taste of each person but are not traditional pans-bagnats.
If you are in Nice for a few days, you might as well try the real Nice pan bagnat.
