Alpes-Maritimes, France

Alain Llorca is a son of southern France - he was born in Cannes and remains faithful to his Mediterranean homeland. He trained in the kitchen with the region's best: Alain Ducasse at Louis XV in Monaco, Jacques Maximin at Le Negresco in Nice... It was a logical move for him to take over the world-famous Moulin de Mougins, created by the legendary Roger Vergé.
