Mauro Colagreco is flying high…

Much more than a restaurant, the Mirazur in Menton is a Mediterranean area, a place to live, a way of thinking, with Nature as the only line of sight. 3 stars in the Michelin Guide, 1st place in the world ranking “The World Best Restaurants”, the chef Mauro Colagreco collects the victories. The pandemic has helped him build a new project…

An atypical chef.    

From his native land of Argentina to the lands of the Côte d’Azur, the path was passionate. This path paved with travel, discovery, ambition and hard work has led this super-chef to the top of his art.  His boldness and vision are reflected in his Mediterranean cuisine that transcends the seasons. It is instinctive and generous, Mauro having long been convinced of the benefits of short circuits on the strength of products. With his strong links with the surrounding nature, he is committed to saving the planet.  As a responsible chef, he breaks the codes and fights relentlessly for local production, even if he draws his inspiration from all over the world. Mauro is excellence, in all simplicity.

A reflection…a renewal

“Recently, more than ever, I have become aware of our vulnerability and the global impact of our lifestyles on the world,” he explains. “We are now faced with a real need to reinvent our activities in respect of our dear mother earth. Returning to our roots, putting ourselves at the service of the living, is what inspires our approach at Mirazur. Let’s learn together to listen to nature, to feel it, to understand it, to tame it, and to live it every day. “Mauro’s new culinary concept follows the lunar calendar, which now sets the pace for the work of the chef and his teams.

“The moon and the stars are the true conductors of the gardens; the lunar calendar highlights their interactions, the different parts of the plants and the elements of nature: the roots are thus linked to the earth, the leaves to water, the flowers to air, and the fruits to fire. Observing the forces at work in nature through our work in the gardens allowed us, while the restaurant was closed, to blossom our creativity and connect with our essentials. Thus the teams developed a cuisine in 4 variations, the result of this silent vital flow. “

Root Universe, Leaf Universe, Flower Universe, Fruit Universe  

From now on, each guest will travel through a well-defined sensory journey, around daring dishes coming mostly from the Mirazur gardens and highlighting the diversity of Roots, Leaves, Flowers or Fruits depending on the day they come. These four worlds are the common thread of an experience, and blend with the elements already present in the Chef’s cuisine: seafood from local and responsible fishing, selected farmed meats, and the treasures of the Mediterranean’s historical producers and market gardeners. His creations invite us to reflect on all the exchanges that are constantly taking place in our ecosystem. A network of interconnections that sustains life ….
