Special Provencal dishes with photos.
Carpentras is well known for various local delicacies, including the delicious Carpentras Candy hand made in the local shops.
Here are just a few samples of the artistry from the Clavel shop, on 30 rue Porte d'Orange in Carpentras. Whatever these may look like, they're all candies. Clavel is a specialist in Carpentras candies and berlingots (a hard caramel candy), in the town that's famous for them.
