Contemporary French cuisine experience in the middle of nowhere. Do you know where Saint Alban de Roche is? (I did not)

Anyways, chef Romain Hubert is simply brilliant. The dishes are imaginative and a tickle to all the senses – sight, aroma and taste. His artistic flare with flavours and complex cooking method really does pay off. Think foam and paper thin aubergine… His restaurant serves upon appointment only. Just himself and a waitron. More chic and less pompous than the usual French gourmet restaurant.

I loved the foam broccoli/parsley soup. The clever bowl enhances the sense of smell like a wine glass. Very smart.

Waitron isn’t knowledgeable in wine; better to go with the wine recommended by the chef.

Cheese lovers out there. Strangely, the selection is not special. I think you’ll be better off doing a 2nd dessert.

**don’t be late for your appointment**

How to get here?

By a CAR for sure. This place is really in the middle of nowhere by most tourists terms.
