The bouillabaisse a is a typical dish from Marseille, a city in the south of the France, but we made it all over in Italy too.
The name come from "bouille"(to boil) and "baisse"(low) because it should cook at a low temperature.
This soup is born like a poor dish, made with the left over of the unsold fish, but become today a fancy and really expensive, but yet really good, dish.
It must be serve really hot with roasted slices of bread and Ruille sauce (i explain how to make it later).
