Grand Cru chocolate soufflé, tonka bean ice cream
.
My first stop was to Lausanne on the shores of Lake Léman where I was to visit 3 restaurants. The first meal was so good that I ended up coming back for a second meal to try some more of chef @franckpelux dishes.
Franck and partner Sarah Benahmed have only very recently taken over the reins of La Table restaurant situated in the excellent Lausanne Palace hotel. Formerly La Table D’Edgard, the restaurant closed early in 2020 holding one Michelin star and an impressive 18 Gault Millau points.
This is a restaurant that was recommended to me not for the restaurant itself but by people who have been following the chef. Looking at where Franck and Sarah had worked previously, Le 1947, Au Crocodile and a stint in Hong Kong, I was fairly sure that I would get along very well with the cooking here. Le 1947 is my favourite ⭐️⭐️⭐️ in the world and chatting to Sarah we realised that she most likely served me on my last visit there several years ago.
I had the tasting menu on my first visit and on my second Franck very generously made another tasting menu of A La Carte dishes that I hadn’t tried. Standouts were a stunning leek consommé with a leek stuffed fried bun and an exceptionally well balanced composed cheese course of Gruyère shaved over a sorbet and baked apple and a Gruyère crouton flambéed in Kirsch. Dishes like the crab “memory of a HongKong street”, draw from their travels.
So good! Get yourself a table at La Table if you are ever in the area.

The "Pot Au Feu" from Vaud's vegetable garden, horseradish and Daurenki pearls.

This was my first trip to Switzerland ever, apart from a couple of days in Geneva years ago and it did not disappoint. Eye watering prices, sure, but also some fantastic restaurants in some spectacular settings.
