Lamartine, Restaurant on the Shores of Lac du Bourget
The produce, the expression of emotion
In the kitchens of the Michelin-starred Lamartine restaurant, on the shores of Lac du Bourget, the produce is the foremost ambassador of this soulful cuisine. More than the seasons, the produce sets the tone, in tune with its own cycle of ripening. As the star act of the menu, it distils flavours and textures into an elegant and distinctive signature style. Bourget pollan, fried perch, pearly Arctic char, rack of lamb and sweetbreads - Chef Valentin MARIN‘s dishes are a true reflection of the Savoie region, skilfully interjected with a hint of flavours from elsewhere.
"Take home a souvenir of Savoie."
A contemporary take on a terroir
A single product in all its many variations, a sauce that acts like a backbone, adding structure to the dish... The young chef's signature is founded on one overarching idea: simplicity opens the door to true flavour. The house style of this Michelin-starred Lamartine restaurant near Aix-les-Bains also draws on local herbs, plants and flowers. Yarrow, oxalis, anise hyssop, scented geranium and lemon balm, picked in the garden or on the mountain pastures, are the aromatic spearheads that leave a lasting impression on the palate and a true reminder of Savoie.
Discover the intuitive world of Valentin Marin, with a menu designed for pleasure, evolving and inspired by the rhythms of nature, and featuring 3-, 6- and 8-course menus for an aromatic crescendo of flavours.
