The earth as source of inspiration and creativity beside the Mediterranean. It is from the richness of the soil that Mauro creates his cuisine, putting what is produced by nature at the very heart of all he creates.
The herb and citrus fruit garden
At a slightly lower level than the restaurant, the Mirazur’s first garden is planted with citrus, herbs and medicinal plants. Apart from the avocado tree (said to be the oldest and biggest on the Riviera coast) this cross between garden and orchard is full of lemon, orange, mandarin, clementine and grapefruit trees, among which is a sprinkling of mint, chive, sage, absinthe, oregano and savory, as well as edible flowers such as borage and nasturtium, which feature in Mauro’s dishes.
The vegetable garden
"When one vegetable grows naturally next to another, they are made to go together on the plate.” This is the origin of the idea of growing our own vegetables. Seedlings and rare vegetables are cultivated in various nurseries around Menton.
