/// Cuisine and tastes
Awarded one star by the Michelin Guide since 2000 and three toques by the Gault Millau since 2009, Marc FAIVRE’s cuisine features products fromthe region of Franche-Comté. Morteau sausage is sliced and placed on steamed leeks and thin puff pastry, with a poached egg on the top. Mouth-watering isn’t it? Fera, a fish from the Lake Geneva, is poached and served with absinthe from Pontarlier. Local toasted corn flour is used for gnocchis that match perfectly with an old Comté from Fort Saint Antoine. Free-range chicken is cooked according to the traditional local recipe with Vin Jaune and morels. Potatoes and Mont d’Or are turned into an elegant cheese.
It is of the utmost importance for Marc to use only fresh and seasonal products. Everything is homemade at Le Bon Accueil’s restaurant both for taste’s sake and for the love of good food. Through his cuisine, Marc Faivre proclaims passions for his craft and for his region.
