YOUR GUARDIAN CHEF: The Gourmet Journey
South of France map Video Journey with spectacular sceneries, exquisite art and delicious Mediterranean food
This year I started to create YouTube videos to portray the beauty of the Cote D'Azur and the richness of its culture.
Featuring a new location each time, I show the beautiful scenery, explain some background history, discover artistic treasures, connect to nature and with the local cuisine.
You find below a map of all the locations that have been featured in the videos and a list of restaurant recommendations.
Each icon has a link where you can either watch the video or read the restaurant review.
Enjoy the journey and if you want to be updated with the new videos, subscribe to my newsletter or to my YouTube channel:
