I was reminded of Connecticut chowder, – a fish soup with bacon and tomatoes – when I came across this rather magical dish. The Languedoc bouillabaisse is an aromatic Mediterranean fish soup containing garlic, saffron and fennel, but, unlike the Marseillaise version, this one shares the basic chowder theme of fish with bacon.
