Fine-dining Alpine Tapas Menu by Yves Camdeborde at the M de Megève

This winter, from now to April 2018, sought-after chef Yves Camdeborde will hold the residency at leading French Alpine hotel: the 5-star, Small Luxury Hotel “M de Megève”.

The Bureau d’Etude Gastronomique and the Buildinvest Group, owner of the M de Megève, decided to invite the renowned chef Yves Camdeborde to create a luxury tapas menu for the M’s clients, in a collaboration that will marry talent, prestige and gastronomy with a love of the mountains.

Chef Yves Camdeborde is known as one of the founding fathers of the famous French ‘bistronomie’ movement, exemplified by the menu at his hotel-restaurant in Paris, the award-winning Relais Saint Germain. He accepted the invitation to the Alps from Sébastien Ripari, owner of the Bureau d’Etude Gastronomique, as an opportunity to share his creativity, his expertise and his passion for gastronomy and has consequently created a fine-dining Alpine tapas menu for the hotel.

Chef Camdeborde said: “I come from the Pyrenées. I love the mountains just as much during the summer as in the winter, and Megève is a place that I hold particularly dear.

I am thrilled to have this opportunity to create an original tapas menu for the stunning ‘M’ hotel.

Why tapas?
Tapas, for me, are the cousins of French hors-d’oeuvre. They are smaller in terms of portions, but are just as gastronomic while being explosive, surprising, different and delicious!

I always felt that lighter food options were lacking during ski trips, especially ones that could be shared.

Tapas remind us of a sharing culture, which automatically feels friendly. We picture ourselves choosing from a wide range of options while sitting with friends and family around the fireplace.”
