DISCOVER THE RECIPE OF THE CHEF ALEXANDRE REYMOND INSPIRED BY PAINTING
Do you know Félix Buhot’s painting Morsaline Saint-Lunaire? From the collection of the Thomas-Henry Museum in Cherbourg-en-Cotentin, it magnificently presents the riches of our Cotentin region: the sea and the countryside.
This is the painting that Chef Alexandre Reymond of Les Fuchsias restaurant chose to create this recipe. Freely inspired by this unfinished painting, he wanted to go further in his reflection and interpret in his own way what Felix Buhot saw.
Seafood, local produce, oysters, fish… The Chef offers you an original recipe to discover the subtlety of the flavours of the Cotentin.
