Guide to 800 restaurants

Written by Laurence Bry. Posted in Restaurants

The 25th edition of the reference guide to gourmet addresses in Provence -Cote d'Azur was official released last week in Bonnieux.. Provençal chefs present at the launch include Jean-André Charial, Guillaume Sourrieu, Eric Sapet, Xavier Burelle and Jean-Jacques Prévôt who greeted guests with some examples of their culinary delights.

For the past 25 years The Gantié Guide has featured the best restaurants in the south of France. The guide not only includes gastronomic restaurants but bistrots, brasseries, auberges and even gourmet shops and charming local hotels.

Author Jacques Gantié and his entourage of writers, including fellow Canadian Ester Laushway,  take on the task of eating their way through the Bouches du Rhone, the Vaucluse, the Alpes Maritimes, the Var, the Alpes de Haute Provence, Monaco as well as the Italian regions of Liguria and Piedmont to update the guide annually.. Restaurants are rated between 1 and 4 olive branches- the symbol of Mediterranean culture.
