Bouillabaisse served at restaurant 'Le Calypso', Marseille, France, 25 August 2012. Bouillabaisse is a traditional Provençal fish stew originating from Marseille. Traditionally, the broth is served separately from the fish and vegetables. The Calypso restaurant is known for its authentic and high quality traditional bouillabaisse, and prepares the dish with five different varieties of fish, mainly rockfish, caught locally, including scorpion fish, weever fish, 'la galinette' (variety of fish found in Provence), John Dory, conger eel and sea bream. The restaurant was part of a group of Marseille restaurants in the 1980s to write a 'Bouillabaisse Charter', to authenticate the dish and set rigourous standards for its preparation. The Charter is no longer currently exists as an official label but Le Calypso retains its principles in preparation of the dish, which sets standards in terms of the mix of fish species used, the quality and local provence of the fish, the recipe and method of serving.
