Aix en Provence - Food guide restaurant

Cette table à prix doux nous raconte l'histoire d'un jeune chef méditerranéen : Joan Sampietro, 31 ans, tient son prénom de sa mère espagnole, son nom de son père italien et son registre gastronomique de Sisteron, où il a grandi. L'agneau, forcément, gambade souvent dans les assiettes de cette adresse vite repérée par les gourmets, tout comme les produits de saison provençaux, volontairement simples à midi, plus nobles le soir.
