Un Extraordinaire Voyage Culinaire

David Kinch, Alex Atala, and Mauro Colagreco at Mirazur

On July 21 and 22, three chefs came together from three continents to cook for the dinners titled Trois Chefs, Trois Continents, Une Même Philosophie... at Mauro Colagreco's Michelin-starred restaurant Mirazur, situated on the sparkling coast of the Côte d'Azur in Menton, France. David Kinch joined chef Colagreco and chef Alex Atala of D.O.M., the restaurant in Sãu Paulo, Brazil rated highest in South America by the S.Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants 2010. Guests were treated to a sumptuous twelve-course dinner, with the chefs preparing four courses each. The international press took notice with a glowing review by Jean-Claude Ribaut in Le Monde.
