Gordon’s gastro tour de France
From three-star cuisine to village cafés, where to eat across the Channel and recipes for what you’ll savour there
If you’re planning an evening in Tourtour and fancy something more upmarket, you’ll do no better than to eat at La Table. Run by hard-working couple Meia and Laurent, it’s not even listed in the Michelin guide, although it most definitely deserves a star. For €35 (£25) you can enjoy a five-course menu. Arriving from Draguignan or Ampus, you’ll find La Table as you enter the village, opposite the car park.
