“Aïoli gently intoxicates, charges the body with warmth, and bathes the soul in rapture. In its essence, it concentrates the force and the joy of the sun of Provence. Around an aïoli, well-perfumed and bright as a vein of gold, where are these men who would not recognize themselves as brothers? ”
(Frédéric Mistral, a Provencal poet and renowned gourmet)
