    The food speciality of Aix-en-Provence is the Calisson d'Aix.

    This is a flat boat shaped delicacy made out of marzipan with a hint of citrus or melon sugar paste added, then coated with sugar icing on top. It would be very easy to make and each person in your class could have one without making any mess or having to bring a cooked dish.

    This is what they look like:

    http://www.calisson.com/

    and if you scroll down this site you will find a recipe that can easily be copied, variations, and also the detailed history of this delicacy.

    However if you want more info all you need to do is a websearch for 'Calissons d'Aix' and there is plenty of other websites on the subject.

    Probably nobody else in your class will know about them.

    Good luck!

    You should maybe say where in Provence, this is a bit vague as Provence is a region. Like me asking about a Four Season in California.

    Well, Provence has a warm, dry, meditterranean climate.

    Lots of their cooking includes things like olives / olive oil, sardines, garlic, , tomatoes, etc

    Ratatouille would be a good example. It originated in Nice but that's close enough :)
