This is the most elegant Festival de la Gastronomie I have ever seen! Tucked in the hills north of Cannes, in the lovely village of Mougins, the most brilliant chefs have gathered to celebrate, demonstrate and give workshops that will inspire the “chef” in everyone.

At Les Étoiles de Mougins, I learned how to make a crab entrée (infused with Yuzu un citron japonais/ Japanese lemon), finished with broccoli cream and a black garlic emulsion. This was insanely delicious!

      Oh the subtleties of the French culture!

      The dish I prepared was an appetizer:

      une entrée – appetizer/starter: entrée entrée can mean “main course” in English
      le plat principal – main course
