For more than 25 years, Michel Benet, coming from the industry of catering and twice finalist of MOF (Best Worker of France), treat to a meal the couples from all over the world. Indeed, la Vallergue is reaching clients worldwide even though it is not always easy to translate properly “Le Pistou de filet de rouget sur son émincé de fenouil” (Pistou of red mullet fish on fine slices of fennel). The whole company is a family story, as it is composed by the father « their Chef » and his 2 sons: Roberto who is the director and Aurélien who is the pastry chef.
What is making their strength is their capacity to answer all couples in less than 2 days, either in French or in English. But also to be able to make their dream wedding cake, French style thanks to their pastry team and to serve you on the D-Day with smile!
What makes them different than the other caterers from the region is that they have been awarded second best caterer of France in 2018! (They also won the Wedding Awards in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 from the website Mariage.net)
What is your philosophy?
Our philosophy is to use only fresh, good and regional (from Provence) ingredients, and to tailor-made all our menus. And of course to accompany this with top quality and professional service from our teams on the D-Day.
Not to forget a commercial team ready to listen to all the needs of the couple.
What is inspiring you?
Provence, olive trees and lavender
What are your favorite plates from your menu?
The nature foie gras along with its home-made gingerbread (a very popular meal during the tastings), the macaroon tomato, goat’s cheese, and basil
As a starter: Millefeuille of red mullet fish barely cooked with its emulsion of beurre blanc, chives, and early vegetables.
As a course: Filet mignon of lamb from Provence, meat stock with rosemary and grilled Provencal flavors
Can you give us 3 words that describe the best the modern bride/couple according to you?
They are traveling the world, take advice from professionals instead of their parents and know what they want!
What is your vision of an on-trend wedding?
An on-trend wedding for us would be a wedding that takes place under the stars in a field of olive trees, chic but rustic if the weather is sunny; or under a tent, with some big wooden tables and some vintage dishes if it is more unstable.
Are there some venues that you particularly like to work into?
Domaine de Sarson, Château de la Tour Vaucros, les Domaines de Patras, Mas de So, Mas d’Arvieux, Domaine de Blanche Fleur, Domaine de Palerme, Mas des Comtes de Provence…There are a lot of gems in the area!
One that is out of the ordinary: Domaine Sainte Colombe
One more intimate: Domaine les Roullets
