Famous in the southern region of Marseille, France, the spicy fish soup known as Bouillabaisse is a combination of fresh vegetables, 6 varieties of fish, and a sprinkle of saffron. Originally a fisherman's solution for leftover scraps at the end of a work day, this traditionally inexpensive dinner has escalated into a pricey tourist craving and can now set diners back up to $75 for a serving at a local restaurant. But is this dish really worth all the hype? Eleanor Beardsley of NPR traveled across the pond to take a taste for herself, and her report is definitely worth listening to.


But you know us -- we want to try making it at home. Do you have a great recipe?
