Let’s start with: Apple, wheat and red fruits where the Granny Smith, with pleasant tangy notes, is marinated in spices and served with buckwheat seeds and a red fruit compote. We then proceed to a very cool Salad with wild herbs, goat cheese and apples. An always winning combination, that between cheese and apple, in this case the sweet and fragrant Royal Gala which balances well the acidity of the vinaigrette with raspberry juice. The first course is a mountain ceviche. A particularly sweet and juicy Fuji Marlene extract is used to season char, a mountain fish, to be served with unusual Jerusalem artichoke crisps, potato skins and fish skin. As a second course, the chef thought of Game. The pulp of the Red Delicious apple reveals all its melting juiciness when it is braised with onions then accompanied by the sirloin of deer. The grand finale is a apple mille-feuille, specifically Golden Delicious Marlene, sweet, aromatic and with a hint of acidity that contrasts with the richness of the dessert. This reinterpretation of the “classic” millefeuille includes a kefir sauce, a crumble and a sabayon mousse.
