Sometimes I love to think back to what it must have been like in the late seventies at Domaine Tempier.

It could even be said that the region was the gastronomic capital of the world for a brief moment, at least in certain circles (ours!), and Lulu’s kitchen was the epicenter. Oh, how the wine and conversation must have flowed with those incredible meals, beautiful scenery, and wonderful people who enjoyed life . . .
