by Redaction NOW Village

His recipe for French toast with herbs and féra

It is in Troinex, in the heart of the Geneva countryside that Chef Serge Labrosse has installed his warm and gourmet cuisine. A moment of happiness guaranteed in this elegant bistro with a friendly atmosphere, where the perfect balance between tradition and modernity reigns. It is also in the plate that one finds the balance, undoubtedly thanks to the culinary heritage of the Burgundian origins of the Chef, associated with a creativity without limit. At La Chaumière, we enjoy tasting dishes that honor exceptional local products with local collaborations, an authentic cuisine with a delicate presentation that has been awarded a star in the Michelin guide and rated 15/20 by Gault et Millau.

This cooking enthusiast has also developed the Atelier By Serge Labrosse, cooking classes guided by great professionals to improve on various themes.
