For Two Nights Only, an Award-Winning Chef Will Cook Up a Gastronomic Feast at Mireio
Naming your business after yourself is very telling of how bold a character you are. French chef Benjamin Collombat must be so confident in his own culinary talent that he put his name on his one-Michelin star restaurant Le Jardin de Benjamin in the tourist favorite region of Provence France.
