MICHELIN STARRED DINNER WITH FRONT ROW SEATS FOR THE FIREWORKS AT CARCASSONNE’S CITADEL
JULY 14, 2019
In front row seats looking out over Carcassonne’s blazing citadel, come and enjoy a unique and sensory experience: We invite you to discover a gourmet menu made by the Michelin starred chef, Jérôme Ryon*, along with wine from the Foncalieu vineyards.
Information and booking on :
Jérôme RYON, Chef of the gourmet restaurant La Barbacane (1 Michelin star).
It is in the heart of the magical setting of the Medieval City of Carcassonne, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, that Bourg-en-Bresse-born Jérôme Ryon works his magic. Having started in La Barbacane about ten years ago, Franck Putelat’s former sous-chef took over the kitchen of Hôtel de la Cité’s gourmet restaurant six years ago. With gusto. Jérôme Ryon’s cuisine really emphasises the starting ingredients, including fish and Mediterranean vegetables, as well as products from the Lyon region (a nod to his mountain roots). A cuisine that is based on classic ingredients over the different seasons, defying the norms just enough to bring a beautiful original flavour.
