For those heading to the peaks of Mont d’Arbois, France this winter, don’t miss a visit to Four Seasons Hotel Megève’s new fine dining collaboration with renowned Michelin-starred Chef Anne-Sophie Pic.
Treating guests to locally-sourced, traditional French cuisine, La Dame de Pic – Le 1920 is a brand new culinary experience designed to showcase nature and the outstanding quality of the region’s gourmet delights.
Anne-Sophie Pic is the most decorated Michelin starred female chef in the world, currently holding eight Michelin stars across her five restaurants. With a presence in Paris, Singapore, and at La Dame de Pic London (at Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square), the incredible three-star chef will offer foodies a taste of her sublime talent when the doors to five-star Four Seasons Hotel Megève reopen this December.
The restaurant’s name pays homage to the historical arrival of Noémie de Rothschild in Megève a century ago, while honouring the newfound collaboration between Chef Anne-Sophie Pic and Ariane de Rothschild, who both share an appreciation for the beauty and authenticity of the quaint mountain village.
“Looking at the evolution of the Mont d’Arbois, a collaboration with Anne-Sophie Pic felt very natural,” says Ariane de Rothschild. “I have great admiration for female chefs who make a name for themselves and fully express their culinary identity in a very demanding environment. I am particularly happy to welcome Chef Anne-Sophie Pic to the beautiful setting of Le 1920.”
At the heart of this alpine dining outpost is a connection to nature and an aim to spotlight the local producers behind the region’s gourmet delights. Diners are invited to explore the dining establishment’s commitment to showcasing local flavours on a global stage.
For Chef Anne-Sophie Pic, her latest opening symbolises edible escapism: “To me, Megève has always been synonymous with escape. Over the past few years, I have discovered a truly inspiring terroir here. Four Seasons is a remarkably unique place to further enhance this terroir”.
When it comes to the menu, Anne-Sophie Pic will draw her inspiration from La Ferme des Trente Arpents, owned by the Edmond de Rothschild family in the heart of the Briard region, famed for its cheeses, honey, terrines, and olive oils.
In its beautiful mountain setting, the restaurant’s open kitchen allows guests to take in the energetic atmosphere and smell the delicious aromas of Chef Pic’s culinary artistry before it even hits the table. The restaurant’s terrace also offers spectacular views in both summer and winter – after all, it’s never too early for an Aperol Spritz on the slopes.
