MOVEABLE FEAST WITH FINE COOKING
Cadanet, France

 

Travel to the interior of Provence when Moveable Feast with Fine Cooking visits Cadenet, France. Host Pete Evans takes a trip to see how the covetable fleur de sel salt is harvested from the pink waters of Aigues Mortes, a region of salt ponds bigger than Paris. Then, Pete meets up with the mother-daughter chef team of Reine and Nadia Sammut to source fresh artichokes from their local field and prepare them at their stellar countryside restaurant. Nadia has made it a point in her family’s restaurant to incorporate gluten-free items after she discovered she had Celiac disease; her mother Reine, who has been the owner of the restaurant for decades, melds her classic techniques with allergy-conscious ingredients. French heritage is found in both the setting and the feast: on the menu are artichokes Provençal, gluten-free focaccia, and a luscious lamb stew.
