The Le Très Bon menu is a labour of love from master chef Christophe Gregoire. Like an alchemist, he transforms choice, fresh produce into authentic French dishes that warm your heart like the stone hearth in a rustic farmhouse kitchen.
Where possible, Christophe uses organic ingredients and changes the menu to match the whims of the season. Not that Christophe's menu is without elements of surprise! His gift is signature blends of herbs and spices, and sometimes exotic dishes, inspired by his travels and the tropical flavours of French colonial islands, sit alongside the expected foie gras, truffles, escargot and game.
