A large blackened copper pan containing socca (a.k.a. farinata) at Chez René Socca in Nice, France – a regional specialty, socca is a big unleavened pancake made from chickpea flour and in this case cooked in a wood burning oven like a pizza. Socca is said to have originated in Liguria, Italy and is just one of many French-Italian hybrid dishes you’ll find in this region, so close to the Italian border.
