Bouillabaisse is a traditional fish stew that originated in the coastal region of Provence, France. It is believed to have originated as a way for fishermen to use up the catch of the day that was not suitable for sale. They would throw all the fish, along with vegetables and herbs, into a pot and simmer it to make a hearty and flavorful stew. The dish has since evolved and is now a delicacy that is often served with Rouille, a garlicky mayonnaise-like sauce, and crusty bread. Today, the dish is considered a symbol of Mediterranean coastal cuisine and is enjoyed by people all over the world.
