Top chef Mauro Colagreco certainly made his mark in the culinary world. In 2019, his restaurant ‘Le Mirazur’ was awarded its 3rd MICHELIN Star. Mauro has been named ‘Chef of the Year’ on many occasions, and his restaurant ranks high on ‘The World’s 50 Best Restaurants’ every year. Meet top chef Mauro Colagreco.
Restaurant Le Mirazur***
When Le Mirazur opened in 2006, it was awarded its first MICHELIN Star within a year. After that, two more would follow, making it one of the world’s most important culinary magnets. Located in Menton, France, but only a stone’s throw away from Italy, Top chef Mauro Colagreco brings the best of both worlds in his visionary vegetable-focused dishes.
“Moon, planets, cosmos, nature – the rhythm of all that is the expression of nature. If we plant a seed in our garden, there is an immediate connection to the moon, the stars' position, and our exact location.” - Mauro Colagreco.
Rosmarino Garden is like Eden to Mauro Colagreco. It’s a microclimate where they grow bananas, cabbage, almonds, carrots, tomatoes, and more. There are over 70 types of tomatoes growing in the garden. Colagreco explains that this magical energy is present, which brings fruit to the best produce.
Leaves, flowers, roots, fruit – the union of all these elements creates something amazing. That’s the central theme of the Mirazur guest experience.
The biodynamic agriculture is a perspective. It’s not just technical. The biodynamic agriculture is a philosophy. A way of seeing and understanding nature. It’s a way of being.
In Castillon, nature is wild and surrounds the garden. It’s situated at an altitude of 600 metres and has a totally different climate than Rosmarino. It has colder and shorter seasons.
Both gardens provide Mauro and his team with very diverse produce that are like “musical notes in the kitchen”.
