I shot a story about the 2 star restaurant `Le Moissonnier` in Cologne for Vogue Germany.
This is Liliane and Vincent Moissonnier in front of their little restaurant in Krefelder Strasse. Styled like a cosy and charming French Brasserie, you would´t expect 2 stars hiding behind those curtains.
The restaurant was established by the young and freshly married Moissonniers in 1987, only a little time before head chef Eric Menchon joined the team.
each course is comprised of 3 dishes, accompanied by a little card explaining the ingredients and components

Monsieur Menchon, chef Cuisinier of the two star Restaurant. He grew up in the South of France but his parents used to live in Morocco, an influence that you can obviously taste in his dishes. He runs the kitchen of `Le Moissonnier` with his beautiful wife, Patricia Menchon.
