Headed by Chef Camille Benedetto, who has been trained for 18 years in classic French cuisine with a Mediterranean infusion, the kitchen formulates all sorts of butter creamed recipes typical of French dishes but also has touches of southern ingredients predominated by olive oil, basil and tomatoes.
