For Alain Ducasse, who loves simple and authentic flavours, using a product from the terroir is something obvious. He only has one demand : quality. Along the seasons, the Chef will make his guests savour exceptional regional food : Beauregard lamb, cheese from Banon, truffle from Riez, Cavaillon melon… And the Sonaillo, the homemade cocktail, honours the Amandine ( a local liquor) for an exquisite taste…
THE TASTE OF PROVENCE
Let yourself be guided by your taste buds to discover Provence in its appetizing diversity ! The lavender honey, clear and unctuous, has an AOC* (*French certification granted to certain French geographical indications for wines, cheeses, butters, and other agricultural products). This honey can be tasted in the village, in some dishes, but also in the famous “Biscuits de Moustiers” pastries or even in pint of milk beer… One will discover the different types of cheese along the markets. The gnôle de Provence, the Pastis, the Génépi and some other aperitif liquors made with plants will certainly surprise spirit lovers.
Faithful to the southern cuisine precepts, the chef only uses homemade olive oil to cook. It is a mild and fruity oil, made with fully ripe fruits from the Bastide’s olive trees. Extracted in the Aups mill, it will ravish the connoisseurs who will luckily taste it in the restaurant.
