Maison Prévôt

If things had gone as planned for Jean-Jacques Prévôt, chef and founder of Maison Prévôt, he would have never opened his restaurant.

On a trip to visit his mother in Paris in 1977, he told Stars and Stripes, his car broke down outside the town of Cavaillon in the south of France. When he phoned his mother to explain what happened, she asked him to walk into town and buy her some Charentais, a varietal of melon so adored in Cavaillon that it has its own sculpture, festival, and order of knights.
