Carottes Vichy is named after the town of Vichy, located on the banks of the Allier River in the northern part of the Auvergne region in France. Vichy is famous for its numerous spas and its carbonated water, which is used in this dish to soften the carrots.

This recipe is ultra easy. All you need are some carrots, some Vichy water and some butter.

Veni, Vidi, Vichy! Maybe it's just me but I find this funny. It's in reference of Julius Caesar's immortal words "I came, I saw, I conquered" when he announced to the Senate his victory over Pharnaces. I spent 5 years studying classical Latin in school; that's probably the only few things I remember.

As a child, carrots Vichy was probably my favorite meal at the cafeteria of my elementary school. It was easy to eat (I was a slow eater), tender, sweet and so flavorful. For lunch time, I remember it was always served with a filet de merlan au citron et persil, which is a pan seared sage-flavored whiting (fish) drizzled with lemon juice with some capers and parsley.
