Dive into the heart of french cuisine

There is a famous French book about nostalgia with a madeleine, the flavors of chez max reminded me with great emotion the cooking of my French grandmother

Max’s cooking reminded me of my vacations in the South East of France.
I particularly recommend the duck breast which I think is the best dish on the menu
