Édouard Loubet’s life has been intimately linked with exceptional landscapes as beautiful and peaceful to live in as they are full of flavoursome ingredients. He grew up in Val Thorens and found happiness in the hills of the Luberon where the aromatic herbs he loves so much grow in abundance. Here, the youngest ever Michelin- starred chef (at the age of just 24), who was awarded two further stars and who was Gault et Millau chef of the year in 2011, makes the most of the quintessential character of the superb ingredients grown in the region, from truffles and navelwort, to fine kitchen garden fruit and the produce of apiaries and local hen houses. This is illustrated by his seasoned rack of lamb casserole infused with thyme, navelwort jus and traditional gratin – a dish not-to-be-missed on his sunny menu. There are also truffles en croûte seasoned with a sweetcorn, peppered pop-corn and salad burnet leaf coulis.
