It was among the vineyards of Reims and the mountains of Savoie that Emmanuel Renaut took his very first steps. Alongside his grandparents, farmers and fishmongers, he discovered the work of the land and the treasures of the sea. For him, nature is a playing field that is as exhilarating as it is complex and, from a very young age, Emmanuel nurtured his very first vegetable garden. Original for some, a pioneer for many, the 3-star Chef receives requests from around the world.
Pieter grew up in Holland and very quickly the young boy became fascinated by the wonders offered by nature. When he turned 10, he decided to take up cooking in order to get the most out of the products of his homeland. At the age of 16, he started a hotel-restaurant apprenticeship and continued his training in Belgium after his Baccalaureate. For five years, Pieter learned, in turn, the techniques of the dining room, the kitchen and the wine cellar, but, in order to complete his hunger for knowledge, Pieter continued his training with a year specialising in banquet and catering techniques. To finance his studies, Pieter worked every weekend in a Dutch establishment a few kilometres from his school. While hard at work, some regulars came to dine with one of their French friends, the owner of a gourmet restaurant in Hérault (France), who offered him a seasonal position. For a year and a half, Pieter worked in the kitchens of a bistronomic establishment. In 2011, a position became vacant at the Flocons de Sel. More than a talent, Emmanuel Renaut, the messenger, was looking for a state of mind. The connection between these two nature lovers was immediate and, in December 2011, Pieter became part of the team.
After obtaining her Brevet Professionnel de Cuisine (vocational certificate), Nadine decided that she wanted to forge her career in gourmet cuisine. At the end of her apprenticeship period, she joined the Taverne du Mont d’Arbois in Megève for a season before moving to the owner's Michelin-star establishment: the Château de Noirieux. For two years, Nadine worked alongside an instructive team and perfected her skills. Wishing to return to Megève, Nadine set her sights on the Flocons de Sel. In 2004, when the restaurant still did not have a star in the Michelin Guide, Nadine achieved her goal and joined Emmanuel Renaut's team. In turn employed to work in the pastry, the fish, then the meat, Nadine excelled and was entrusted with the position of Second Chef in 2006. The quality of the site, the produce and the multitude of projects that drive Emmanuel and Kristine Renaut, are all elements that have helped Nadine to turn her career into a genuine passion.
It was while studying for his Brevet Professionnel in Hotel and Catering that Ludovic decided to embrace the career of Sommelier. The son of wine enthusiasts, he spent a year in a wine waiting apprenticeship in Bristol before continuing his apprenticeship at the Atelier owned by Joël Robuchon. After trying his hand in Val d’Isère, Porquerolles and the Seychelles, Ludovic finally decided to ply his trade in the mountains. In 2010, he met Chef Emmanuel Renaut, the two men instantly hit it off and Ludovic joined the 2-star team in Megève as Head Sommelier. In charge of a cellar of 2,000 bottles with more than 1,000 references. Above all, it is the relation with the guests and the daily work alongside the Chef that Ludovic particularly enjoys at the Flocons de Sel. Selected Sommelier of the Year in 2017 by Le Chef magazine, Ludovic refers to this reward with great humility.
