Wild strawberries season at Louis XV is open

I guess this is what distinguishes a great restaurant from an ordinary one. The audacity and, most of all, the ability of serving something so simple as these slightly cooked wild strawberries with mascarpone ice cream, and, at the same time, making it so memorable. I can still…

Elaborate show and luxurious presentation is often a huge part of 3 Michelin stars restaurant experience and the price you pay for it. Irecently read somewhere that people find expensive food better tasting. The simply poached asparagus with crushed egg condiment at Alain Ducasse Monaco was without doubt…

Spring on the plate #2 : Joël Robuchon

Eggplant caviar with raw spring vegetables at Joël Robuchon – Hôtel Metropole Monte-Carlo, in my opinion, the best Robuchon in Europe thanks to the executive chef Christophe Cussac. It’s amazing how much the quality of a restaurant will depend on an executive chef when Michelin starred “chains” like…

At Joël Robuchon

A new brilliant dish by Joël Robuchon Monaco executive chef Christophe Cuissac. Emmental zephyr (something between soufflé and cream, literally melting in your mouth!) is married with black truffles sauce and it’s shavings. I hope this culinary masterpiece will be “exported” to other Robuchon locations around the world.…

I doubt that Mr. Ducasse was in the kitchen and cooked this perfection, but whoever is the head chef at Louis XV by Alain Ducasse in Monte Carlo, I must say, he or she is very gifted. What I like about this particular style of cooking that it is so…

Provencal products, especially vegetables and herbs are the main focus at Alain Ducasse restaurant Le Louis XV in Monaco. Maybe the restaurant’s plates are gold plated and the sumptuous interior is anything but modern, the cooking is contemporary and light. The menu reflects Mediterranean and Provencal cooking traditions and is…

I know, I know I am a little biased – I speak a lot about Joel Robuchon. I do agree that the venture has become “ a luxurious chain”, but to be honest until now the concept is working perfectly well. One of the reasons of the restaurants’ success is…
