Restaurant Review: Le 6 à Table in Caromb

By Michel:

As wife Shirley tells everybody, “Michel is a list person.” And yes, when it comes to restaurants and most anything that is related to food or wine, I’m usually drawn to places which are on a list of “best” in the area. That is why we headed to Caromb to meet friends one evening a few months ago to dine at Le 6 à Table Restaurant, a new addition to the Bib Gourmand restaurants in the Michelin Guide.

Caromb is a small village located about 20 kilometres from our house in Sablet between Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles de Montmirail. Caromb is memorable for me as the location of a restaurant called Le Four à Chaux where we and our Bistro des Copains team who were lodged in nearby Mormoiron dined the first night of a memorable trip to Provence back in January 2007.

Discover Caromb

Located in the Vaucluse, the village of Caromb has roughly 3,250 inhabitants. Like many of its neighbours, the town has rampart walls, and charming Medieval streets dotted with fountains. Caromb sits in the valley with towering Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles de Montmirail not far in the distance. Worth seeing in the town is the Romanesque church of Saint Maurice. One of the largest churches in the Vaucluse, it was built in the 14th century and classified as a historical monument in 1849.

Caromb is also known for its annual fig festival in July. This festival is a tribute to the local variety the figue longue noire de Caromb (a long dark coloured fig). The trees flower twice a year in July and August. Check the Facebook page for specific details about the festival.  The  video below (in French) explains more about the fruit that is a symbol of this village:

The local pizza truck even has a fig pizza!

Market day in Caromb is Tuesday morning from 9h-13h in place Nationale.
