- ‘And then, alas, the pissaladière was on plasticky pastry and all but free of anchovies, the salade de gésiers was greasy, the pig's head was fine but uninteresting with a good, tangy gribiche.’
- ‘Pissaladière is a specialty from Nice, in the South of France.’
- ‘Just over the border from Italy, in the south of France, they have their own version of pizza Pissaladière.’
