Preparation

Note from Ricardo

A traditional Niçoise dish, socca is a large pancake made from chickpea flour. Also known as farinata in Italy, it is crispy on the outside and soft at the centre. It is often served as an aperitif enjoyed with a glass of rosé.

Chickpea flour can be found in grocery stores among the specialty flours or the gluten-free section.
