Family Luxe at Le Richemond

True to my gluttonous nature, I was overjoyed to receive an invitation to savour the new bar menu at Le Richemond in Geneva. To make this foodie premiere even better, I was joined by a group of lovely & enthusiastic Genevan bloggers who share my passion for great cuisine & writing – what more can a blogger ask for?

In between delighted camera snaps, we were treated to some truly scrumptious tasters of Le Richemond’s new Balik salmon, wasabi & squid-ink macarons, followed by nuggets de poulet, velouté de tomates and Croque-richemond (a signature variation on the French all-time classic croque-monsieur). The juicy burger, made with 100% Swiss beef and accompanied by chunky chips, got the thumbs-up from all gathered round the table.

The grand dessert finale included not only a tasting of the new menu’s éclairs au chocolat, moelleux au chocolat & tiramisù, but also a behind-the-scenes visit to the hotel’s renowned kitchen, where this heavenly magic happens every day.
