No less than 15 Michelin stars
now shine in the Vaucluse
, which makes it the most "starred"
department in France (in relation to the number of inhabitants) and 5 new "Bib Gourmands"
have been granted to establishments that offer their clientele tasty cuisine with excellent value for money.
First of all, the much-awaited is the The Hôtel d'Europe****

Two new-comers are now gathering much attention, the Diapason
, on the green outskirts of Avignon
and the Gourmet de la Coquillade
, in Gargas
, in the Luberon
, in the heart of a prestigious house.
The La Bastide de Capelongue in Bonnieux, still has 2 Stars; its Chef, Edouard Loubet, has been elected Best Chef of the Year 2011 by Gault & Millau.
