Portrait chef Marc de Passorio
It was in Aix-en-Provence in 2014 that chef Marc de Passorio opened his restaurant l'Esprit de la Violette. A superb house nestled in the heart of the city, in a magnificent natural setting. Some months
are enough for the chef and his team to win 3 Toques at the Gault & Millau, the Gault & Milau d'Or PACA and a Michelin star. It treats gourmets with inventive, offbeat and generous cuisine.
