Discover the indelible joys of food with us! Let us guide you through a spectrum of colours and flavours to enjoy while on holiday.
The Summer Issue

A holiday is a sensory journey: we travel to see new things; to feel and smell and hear; to listen to the stories of other people; to feel and celebrate the joys of diversity. But to taste is to experience an aspect that doesn't exist on the surface. It isn't a passive experience that just happens to you when you walk the streets and traverse the landscapes of a destination. It is much more than the way aromas flood your nose, or stumbled-upon sites fill you with awe.

Trying the cuisine of a new destination is an active exploration of the unknown. To eat is to search. To taste is to immerse. That's why we have compiled a list of our favourite Michelin star restaurants, luxury restaurants, and food experiences for your next luxury holiday.

Ella Aflalo: A chef on the rise

Ella and her cuisine have traveled to the most beautiful destinations by first learning the ropes through the Paul Bocuse Institute in Lyon, then venturing on to learn under 3-star chef Arnaud Donckele in St Tropez, Latin America to find inspiration, and finally settling in the South of France. 

Through all these experiences, her cuisine has come to resemble her: sparkling, imaginative, feminine, generous, and refined. This young 28-year-old chef is notably known for her appearance on Top Chef, and is now part of a new generation of cooks that works with us to offer you an exceptional culinary experience in the South of France
