Women with Aioli (garlic mayonnaise) - Femme à l'aioli - Fremo eme l'aioli
This charming old woman sits on a small stone bench preparing the garlicky mayonnaise, aioli, her bottle of oil there beside him. She crushes the garlic in her traditional white marble mortar and pestle, the sides of which always remain oily despite thorough cleaning.
As explained in Wikipedia: "In Provence, aioli (or more formally, Le Grand Aïoli) is more than simply the garlic mayonnaise, it also designates a complete dish consisting of various boiled vegetables (uniformly carrots, potatoes, and green beans), boiled fish (normally desalted salt cod), and boiled eggs usually served along with snails or mollusks, with the aioli sauce. Other commonly used vegetables are cauliflower, courgettes (zucchini) and raw tomato."
