My kingdom for a Bonnat bar!

My kingdom for a Bonnat bar!

This is the magic of Monaco, here all standards and norms are turned upside down. In Paris, when you want to buy a bar of the exquisite old fashioned French chocolate bar “Maison Bonnat”, you go to “La Grande Epicerie de Paris“, one of the most selective, expensive, and sophisticated food markets on the planet (it is...

Ma Yucca’s enchanted world in Nice

I told you previously about the Ma Yucca’s magic when my friend Sandrine organized a dinner with the two talented japanese sisters behind the stove.

Now it’s time to eat fresh young raw févettes aka baby fava beans, like a little monkey.

Chez Palmyre in Nice

Chez Palmyre in Nice

I know that lately i gave you several good restaurant tips in Nice, and yes, don’t hate us for being repetitive, but this is a new terrific one, just nearby “Le comptoir du marché” and  “Le café de la bourse” in le Vieux Nice. Welcome to “chez Palmyre”, a very old institution, opened in 1926....
Borage: here comes the spring!

Borage: here comes the spring!

The borage‘s season is just starting now. The right time to get those young fresh leaves, as they are easier to eat fresh at the blooming time. After a while the hairs on the stems will get tougher and then you gonna have to cook it to get rid of those. We found it on...
It's time for Mimosa!

It’s time for Mimosa!

Just a few more days and then it will be over! Now is just the right time to get one of the most beautifull range of mimosa, blooming all over the Riviera, the “gaulois” breed. Its perfume is strong and delicious, and its grains are big and bright yellow, contrary to the “4 seasons” breed...
