The interview with the chief:

How do you contribute to the evolution of Provencal cuisine, what are your challenges?

For me, the cuisine must be fresh and cheerful nowadays, always with a subtle search of flavors and purely Provençal colours! I'm relying on the concept of 'feast'! I search for each of my dishes, each of my sauces, the flavor, the little taste of 'Come back there' to my greatest joy and for the joy of my guests!!!

My challenge is to defend Provençal cuisine entirely so that it is recognized as a cuisine in its own right and not assimilated to Southern cuisine...

Do you make cuisine linked solely to the local terroir or are you inspired by international influences?

I can follow international influences if the product concerned is grown locally, for example saffron, red beans, chickpeas...

A dish of asparagus traditionally accompanied by a Dutch sauce will be served at my home with a cream tour. savory: this sauce, very light, with a little acidulate/macerated taste goes so well with the very sweet taste of asparagus...
