Eric Sapet is the Michelin-starred chef of La Petite Maison, a famous restaurant in Cucuron in the Luberon region where a friendly and relaxed atmosphere prevails. There he manages to mix up Provençale flavors, and his gourmet concoctions are a roaring success.

In south Luberon, in the heart of the medieval village of Cucuron, chef Eric Sapet thrills gourmets’ sharp palates in his one-Michelin-starred restaurant La Petite Maison. An establishment, that, as its name suggests, is located inside a home – formerly this charming village’s little bar – which has conserved its old paneling and period tiles.

Wearing chef’s whites and a welcoming smile, Eric Sapet has been heading the kitchen brigade of La Petite Maison since 2007. After 11 years spent in the kitchens of the most important Parisian restaurants, including the three-Michelin star La Tour d'Argent, he’s a chef with a faultless career and irreproachable experience.

Just reading the menu of La Petite Maison has immediate effect: your mouth begins to water and your stomach rumble. For entrée, what would you say to a salad of raw and cooked ceps? For the main, the chef proposes a veal grenadin in a Parmesan pastry crust served with potato gnocchi, petals of tomato concentrate and Genovese sauce, while dessert is hard to resist too: an apple and gingerbread charlotte with caramel sauce and served with an apple sorbet. It’s true, there’s great things happening in the kitchen of this “little house”!
