The Chefs au Sommet d’Auron hosted at the Le Forest restaurant in Saint Dalmas Le Selvage the chefs David and Noëlle Faure, Laurence Dupertuy and Claire Verneil for a delicious eight-hand gastronomic meal with authentic accents from the Alpine terroir.
Chefs au Sommet d’Auron opened up on a first gastronomic dinner orchestrated with eight hands with the noble ingredients from the Mercantour, produced with the love of the terroir by passionate small producers. David and Noëlle Faure (SensÔriel in Nice), Laurence Dupertuy (Notes de Cuisine in La Colle Sur Loup) and Claire Verneil (By Claire Verneil in Biot) made an elegant and refined menu, composing a festival of flavors that delighted thirty or so gourmets at Le Forest restaurant in Saint Dalmas Le Selvage, a charming mountain village in the heart of the Mercantour.
Locavore in the spotlight

Their sunny cuisine from Nissa La Bella made the trip to the Auron ski resort to treat the tourists who came in droves to one of the most beautiful gastronomic events of the year: Les Chefs au Sommet d’Auron.
For this great opportunity, David and Noëlle – two exceptional chefs who give pride of place to the Locavore – had brought in their luggage two members of the association Les Toques Brûlées, of which they themselves are part, Laurence Dupertuy (Notes de Cuisine à La Colle Sur Loup) and Claire Verneil, (By Claire Verneil in Biot).
