Provençal Cuisine during the Grand Prix

Written by Laurence Bry. Posted in Restaurants

Just a few months before the Grand Prix takes to the Paul Ricard Race Track, Christophe Bacquié of the Hotel du Castellet just received his third Michelin star. Using only locally sourced produce including fresh fish from the daily market in Sanary-sur-Mer Bacquié's cuisine offer a variety of flavours and textures. Reservations mandatory. The restaurant is closed on Sunday and Monday.

With the acquisition of a third star reservations may be hard to obtain but there is an alternative choice for fine dining in the near-by village of La Cadière d'Azur. Chef Jean-François Bérard, who grows his own herbs and organic vegetables and has an extensive wine cellar can not only offer you a wonderful Provençal meal but it can begin by a cooking class. Classes are held in a 19th century Bastide in the heart of the vines and olive trees.
