We are very proud of the food we serve. Having a company director who's one of the best Chefs in the region means that time and passion are poured into every meal we serve. Head chef Raphael wouldn't have it any other way.
Trained in the noted Thonon-Les-Bains Catering School, head chef Raphael has worked in some of Europe's finest kitchens, including the three gourmet restaurants of the Grand Hotel Kempinski (Geneva) and the double-Michelin Starred Patrick Guilbaud (Dublin). His menus celebrate the best of seasonal and regional produce. Today, as the founder of Montagne & Tradition, chef Raphael cooks exclusively for guests staying in The Alpine Lodge.
Raphael has a passion for combining traditional Savoyard principles with modern cuisine, always concious of the context whilst focusing on the best local suppliers and ingredients.
Cooking is not only about the recipe, but looking for the best ingredients at the right time of the year, respecting them when you cook and serving them simply, in context and for everybody...
To create the best dishes we need to source the best ingredients, being very concious of what's in season, from the best local suppliers. Being born and bred in Les Gets, Raphael has an unrivalled network of local suppliers.
When you start with the right ingredients then there's no need to overly complicate them with too many additions. Just cook them correctly and let the natural flavours of the base ingredients come through.
There's a strong tradition in France that the context of the meal matters. The right food for the location, for the venue, for the season. You will find this tradition at the heart of our menus, and it goes without saying that our wines are carefully selected to compliment the meals we prepare.
Great food should be for everyone. All our children's meals have the same care and attention in there preparation, and it goes without saying that everything is home-made.
I have been telling all my friends about the larger than life French chef who cooks like a god...
