The Domaine de Capelongue Relais & Châteaux in Bonnieux
* * Michelin Guide
Our current cuisine in the Luberon comes from a multitude of traditions linked to the fact that the Luberon was a place of passage between Spain and Italy, a mixture of Alpine and Spanish traditions... a cuisine derived from transhumance.
Provencal cuisine is a cuisine of tastes and colors. Our terroir, particularly generous, is dependent on the temperature differences between summer and winter that we have in the Luberon.
Our soils offer wonderful fruits and vegetables as well as the five great aromatic herbs of Provence essential to local cuisine: thyme, sage, rosemary, marjoram and savory.
The Champ des Lunes / Domaine de Fontenille in Lauris * * * *
* Michelin Guide
Originally from the Grenoble region, I arrived in Lauris 2 years ago. I value products from here so my kitchen is Provencal but I avoid the cliché. I cook 'local' with my own characteristics: I use olive oil from starter to dessert...
On the other hand, I also do not deny my origins: I brought with me in particular nut oil and an alcohol 'La Chartreuse'.
I also always serve butter that I rework in my own way on the table with bread.
