Megève, a Michelin star crowned chef, refined taste, imaginative and traditional cooking.
It is essentially thanks to its history and farming heritage that Megève is today one of the most remarkable ambassadors of mountain gastronomy.
The 45 local farms and producers set the tone of a village that has always looked for excellence in its products, and that for a century has attracted generations of young talented chefs with an innovative spirit. Its 89 restaurants, of which 3 have Michelin Stars, offer a wide variety of savours to excite your taste buds.
Furthermore the chefs do not hesitate to favour local cuisine ? from the meat from Megève's own slaughterhouse, to the sorbets and yoghurts from the ?Ferme de Joseph?, and not forgetting the plants and herbs found growing naturally in the mountains.
Throughout the year, on Friday mornings, both locals and visitors wind their way through the stalls of Megève's market seeking a local speciality to share.
Megève, 5 stars village. After Emmanuel Renaut's 3 stars, two other restaurants have achieved star status
The Michelin Guide, something of a bible of French cuisine, has released its 2014 results.
Two of Megève's restaurants have been awarded one of the famous stars, in acknowledgement of the quality work of two talented young chefs and their brigades.
Megève has two new stars on its horizon. Julien Gatillon, chef of the ?Le 1920? restaurant at Chalet du Mont d'Arbois since 2012, and Christophe Schuffenecker, whohas been workingat ?La Table de l'Alpaga?, also since 2012.
These awards come in addition to the three stars gained in 2012 by Emmanuel Renaut at ?Flocons de Sel?, a hallmark of gourmet cuisine in Megève and throughout the French Alps.
From traditional restaurants to exclusive dining experiences, Megève has perfected its diverse collection of know how and once again confirmed its statusas ambassador of mountain gastronomy.
