THE CHEF’S SURPRISE
At LE FARCON* in Courchevel La Tania, the talented chef Julien Machet has decided to develop a new menu to promote the cuisine of the former Duchy of Savoie. At the time, Savoie stretched beyond the two French departments we know today.
For this project, Julien Machet has totally reinvented his cuisine based on the history of the region and the trades and dialogues that existed in the past. “We decided to keep the menu a surprise so that guests could enjoy the full experience and guess where each product was sourced using a map of the former Duchy of Savoie,” he says.
After being headed up by Michel and Maryse Rochedy for more than 50 years, LE CHABICHOU and its double Michelin-star restaurant of the same name have been acquired by the Lavorel Hotels group, which also owns Les Suites de la Potinière***** in Courchevel.
Meilleur Ouvrier de France titleholder StéphaneBuron will now be forming an exceptional duo with Michel Rochedy in the kitchens, continuing to give guests the very best their talent has to offer.
