Cuisine

Socca is a street food you will find around the gorgeous French Riveria city of Nice. The food item is a thin, crusty pancake made from chickpeas cooked in a woodfire pizza-style oven. While the hot side is crusty, the inside of a socca is soft. You will see kids tucking into Socca following a day at school. It is also a food item locals enjoy with a glass of wine or beer at a bar. Rumors suggest socca originated in 1543 when Turkish armies invaded Nice. As the story goes, the Nice fighters ran out of bullets so, they mixed chickpea soup and hot oil. They then poured the mixture down the walls of the city onto the heads of the Turks. Regardless of how effective that was, the Nice fighters tasted the oil and chickpea mix and immediately fell in love with it.
