At the end of 2006 every culinary eye in the country was watching and wondering, who would take La Colombe forward after Franck Dangereaux's departure?
Enter Luke Dale-Roberts, a Brit with oodles of international experience and a vision for the future.
Since taking over Luke has won double honours at the 2008 Prudential Eat Out Awards. He's won the best chef title and La Colombe scooped best restaurant, testimony to his talent, dedication and ballsiness.
Food24 takes you exclusively into the country's top kitchen to cook along with Luke as he creates a smouldering Valentine's dish.
Boys, are you brave enough to try this at home?
