Beef Tataki with peanuts & onion tempura, by chef Julien Lavandet
FR - Chef Julien Lavandet of the restaurant Maison Lavandet, at the Domaine de Privadière, in Garrigues-Sainte-Eulalie, invites himself to your table.
"Julien Lavandet, a pure product of the Gard, knows his land perfectly. Trained "in Marguerittes, commis in Montpellier, formative trips around the world, then a return to his region, the chef spent a few years in Saint-Maximin before settling in Montaren to open La Table 2 Julien, where he received his first Gault&Millau star.
He received a second one at L'Artémise, where he was also awarded the title of "Jeune Talent 2018". He leaves "L'Artémise in 2020 to embark on a new project"... He recovers "his 2 toques, bordering on the third thanks to products gleaned from the surrounding farmers, in a magical place whose large terrace overlooks the vineyards"
(109 from Gault & Millau).
