Alain Llorca’s party
The famous Moulin was created 30 years ago by Roger Vergé in the hills of the Côte d´Azur, not far away from Cannes. Alain Llorca has taken the lead and he himself has established his flavors, his style and his outstanding cuisine.
Alain is a great chef, a real artist who blends art with the excellence of the Mediterranean flavors. His well-known “round of tapas” is a work-of-art for the palate which means a wonderful culinary experience with around 14 different dishes, from the anchovy and sweet potato cream soup garnished with the delicious anchovy skeleton topped with honey and deep fried, to the fresh fois gras in old vinegar garnished with sugar candy and with a sparkling strawberry and basil topping. No words can describe the feast of flavors.
Alain has undertaken the redecoration with a modern style and his dishes dazzle due to their innovative character and flavors. Shortly, the Moulin de Mougins will open its seven refurbished rooms so that visitors will be able to keep the enchanting and magical atmosphere in their minds longer, having the opportunity to enjoy the garden’s scents as well.
The Moulin´s wine cellar is one of the best ones, sheltering wines selected by connoisseurs. The charming atmosphere invites to enjoy la joi de vivre along with an excellent culinary experience. Alain Llorca is a master, the conductor that the southern cuisine has been waiting for quite a long time, and at 36, he is the shiniest star of the French Riviera.
