Best Time of the Day

CANNES: The Film Festival is over and with it also some very nice lunches I have spent in the sun and also lots of rain. Lunchtime is my favorite hour of the day, especially when you can spend it at the French Riviera, in a perfect setting, your own garden, a cosy place up the hills or right at the beach. For now I prefer going to the market, buying fresh vegetables and legumes, invite a couple of friends in my garden overlooking the blue sea and enjoying a very long lunch.
If you feel like being served, try my favorite lunch places on the Côte d’Azur.

Top right to bottom left: Coming home from the market with all the good food for our lunch, photo: Bijan Khezri, Paloma beach from above in Cap Ferrat, Art from Leger at the Colombe d’Or in Saint Paul de Vence, Tetou restaurant, if you do not want to sit inside book a table at the beach restaurant and enjoy the Bouillabaisse on Wednesdays, my favorite summer dessert at the Colombe d’Or, forest strawberries with whipped cream, Café de Turin in Nice, best seafood in town, a view from the Bijou Plage in Cannes, the cooks of the Bistrot du Port, a classic, the Club 55, if you like to stay close to your yacht, have lunch at the l’Ecrin in the Porte Canto
