Michelin-starred chef Xavier Mathieu has opened a stall in Monaco's Condamine market hall. The new venture is as different as you can get from Mathieu's gourmet restaurant at Le Phebus in the Luberon. Open 7/7, the stall sells food made with seasonal produce, which you can eat in or take away. For more information visit its facebook page at: RICE by Xavier Mathieu.
Tomorrow the Christmas Village opens in Port Hercule, along with the annual Telethon fund raising event for rare genetic diseases. We've also started compiling our guide to Christmas in Monaco, which we'll be updating regularly.
