Culinary Wisdom and Warmth…

With its wealth of culinary wisdom and warmth, La Campagne St Lazare with its gites and gourmet restaurant welcomes you to the foot of the charming village of Forcalquier in the heart of Haute Provence.

Warmth for two reasons. The warmth of the sun which engorges our fruit and vegetables with luscious, perfumed juices and the warmth of the fire which reflects the warm and friendly atmosphere that we so much enjoy here.

Wisdom, to source and use seasonal, fresh, local produce that is as healthy as it is tasty.  

" I am what I eat "

The words vegetarian and vegan provoke questions because they define a style of cooking of which, in some cultures, little is known. Barbara, our kitchen fairy, is not only our chef but also a trained naturopath and is more than willing to share her passion about staying healthy through healthy eating with a splash of her amazing, magical creativity thrown in for good measure.

She idealises several wild plants, various germinated seeds, vegetable milks for heathy, tasty recipes and miso, a Japanese seasoning made from fermented grains. All the produce that she uses is freshly picked each day from our gardens or is purchased from the local market thereby ecologically prioritising proximity and circular economy.

Her cuisine demonstrates a delicate balance of chemistry between flavour and concern for bodily health. It is rooted in the power of plants, organic values and is always in harmony with the seasons.

In spring, we gently awaken our body and help it to eliminate toxins that have built up over the winter.

Summer is synonymous with energy, the desire to bite into juicy, ripe fruit and enjoy all the flavours that emanate from the sun.

As autumn arrives so our rhythm slows down and it is time to rest. The arrival of winter is the perfect moment to recharge one’s batteries and plant seeds ready for germination in the spring.

These two passionate people really are sincerely commited to putting you on the right track, through their focus on ecology, environmental protection and appreciation of the local surroundings. They promote a lovely way of life, based on sharing, solidarity and the sheer energy generated from meeting new people.

“I am what I eat” is the message that Barbara, naturo-chef, is trying to communicate to us through her methods. Her lively cooking sincerely comes from the heart, ready to delight all our senses. Her one, single primary objective for each guest is: “to bring health to your body at the same time as bringing pleasure to your senses”. There are sometimes delights that it would be a sin not to taste…

Flavours and lifestyle

Here, we combine the welcoming lifestyle and taste for healthy and attractive eating which is typical of Provence. And, we can add a touch of glamour to this as you please…

La Campagne St Lazare nurtures a NEO-BISTRO spirit by offering a creative menu prepared with fresh seasonal produce selected from small local farmers: the opportunity to share conviviality, passion and gourmet pleasures.
