Yoann embodies all at the same time the sincerity of the Breton folk, the hospitality of the people from the Lorraine region, the curiosity of the Americans, the generosity of the Basques, the stubborn character of mountain people and the loud-mouth attitude of people from southern France. This is no coincidence as chef Yoann has lived in each of these places.
Based on noble values that bring people together, he set out to build not a fairy tale castle but a palace dedicated to flavours. A place that is favourable for encounters. Some of which have changed his life – such as Marc Veyrat from whom he learned so much before taking over the restaurant, or Elodie, who was first his right arm before becoming his wife – others have simply changed his perception of a single day or a product.
What is more natural than to want to delight those who nourish your everyday life? Yoann Conte has a taste for others as one can have a taste for life. Passionately, and above all he has the motivation to bring people together, to exchange and surpass himself.
The chef’s imagination knows no limits and yet the Blue House is not a legend: every day this superb Relais & Châteaux establishment offers an unforgettable experience and memories for gourmet connoisseurs. Sensitive and surprising dishes, based on local products as well as on treasures from the sea served in a truly enchanting setting.
Once upon a time … Yoann Conte, gourmet storyteller on the shores of Annecy lake.
