Emmanuel Renaut's values
Freedom is his driving force, his quest is excellence and discovery is his muse.
Nature is a source of inspiration that is as infinite as it is fragile. Through each of his compositions, the Messenger-Chef works to raise each individual’s awareness of the need for respect of our culinary heritage.
It is with the spirit of a high-mountain guide that Emmanuel Renaut devotes himself to elevating French gastronomy to its very highest level.
Pure cuisine, 100 % mountain
Emmanuel Renaut is proud to present his latest book "Nature d’un Chef", published by Flammarion, a compilation of new recipes to reflect the changing seasons.
This book was a finalist in the France Bleu 2014 book awards.
Also discover his "Best Of", a step-by-step guide to his most emblematic recipes.
The Mountain is the Mont Blanc and its surrounding area, with its blue glaciers and Alpine farms lost in the clouds. The Chef, who holds this region so close to his heart, is Emmanuel Renaut, holder of three Michelin® stars. He invites us into his kitchen and restaurant, the "Flocons de Sel", in Megève, and introduces us to his suppliers, whether it be the old artisan distiller, the lake fisherman, the Beaufort cheesemonger in his cellars, the baker in his laboratory, the apiarist dedicated to his bees, or the Le Valais wine producer; because in cuisine, everything starts with the search for the best quality products.
The Chef then treats us to 52 recipes that take us through the seasons, each creation more surprising and delicious than the last.
More than just a cookbook, this is an invitation to rediscover the mountain, its heritage and its gastronomic traditions, all revisited by one of the youngest and most talented Chefs of his generation.
