BACKGROUND: Lucia owned a French restaurant, in SW France throughout the nineties. It was frequented by a botanist & war veteran named 'Juju' who came to the cafe with his arms full of plants for the menu. Food from Le terroir kindled an interest in the freshest and most seasonal ingredients straight from the land. Her art degree and techincal cooking skills facilitated a unique approach and creativity towards plants and the landscape. The Restaurant Cafe du Livre, featured in The New York Times.
