For this gourmet collaboration, Pierre Chomet has imagined a menu that combines classicism and exoticism. Not surprising when you know that the chef cut his teeth in Bangkok, Thailand, in prestigious establishments, like the Atelier Joël Robuchon. On the menu of this explosive Mama’s Penthouse, a surprising Charentais melon, paired with San Daniele ham, fresh goat cheese, hazelnuts and a crispy pastry; a Thai tom yam soup with shitake, coriander and Espelette pepper; or an incredible Crying Tiger, tamarind sauce, brilliantly executed… The desserts are not to be outdone and should delight the most demanding sweet tooth. Mama’s tiramisu, lemon yuzu meringue tart, chocolate mousse… The choice promises to be difficult.
