While the name may be synonymous with the pleasures of the flesh, Pamela Anderson is a staunch advocate of vegan living, an ambassador for PETA and an animal rights activist.
Having left her Baywatch days behind her, Pamela has her sights set on breaking into the food world and has just announced the opening of what she describes as a ‘sexy vegan restaurant’ in her adopted home of St. Tropez in the south of France.
Teaming up with chef Christophe Leroy, owner of Les Moulins de Ramatuelle, a country house retreat and culinary destination, Pamela’s newest venture will offer contemporary plant based cuisine in beautiful surroundings, perfect for the stylish clientele jetting in to St. Tropez for the summer. The duo describe the concept of the new restaurant as ‘festive, glamorous and vegan’ but it will begin life as a pop-up, initially opening on July 4th for 50 days.
Guests can expect an enchanting and magical decor in this plant-based paradise, with a dedicated Champagne bar and a 100% vegan gourmet menu, inspired by the produce of the Cote D’Azur. Diners can expect meat-free marvels such as Pissaladiere, Tomato Tartare with goji berries and Asparagus Risotto followed by an abundant dessert buffet.
With various price brackets for a three course meal depending on the seating time, an early bird can enjoy an entrée, plat and dessert for €50, while diners looking to soak up the night time buzz from 10pm to 1am will pay €120 a head for the privilege of partying like Pammy.
If you’re not lucky enough to have a trip to the south of France planned for this summer, Pamela will also be releasing her own vegan cookbook, C’est Bizarre, later this year so you can sample her goods for yourself.
