and Yoann Conte
An ordinary woman and man bubbling with extraordinary ideas.
Yoann is the sincerity of the Bretons. Lorraine hospitality. American curiosity. The sense of sharing of the Basques and the stubbornness of the mountain people. It is no coincidence when you know that he grew up or settled down in each of these regions.
There is also the army, this institution which instilled in him the values which make him the man he is today. The one who always speaks using the US, knows that alone he would not be there. His family, his teams, these are all his life values. Around these noble values that bring people together, he has built around him not a castle life, but a palace of flavors. That of encounters. Some have changed his life - like Marc Veyrat, from whom he learned before succeeding him, or Elodie, who would become both his right-hand man and his wife, by offering him the family serenity he was waiting for so much - others modify his perception of a day, of a product.
What is more obvious than wanting to treat those who feed you every day? Yoann Conte has the taste of others as one has a thirst for life. Passionately. To insanity. And above all: federate, exchange, excel.
The Chef's imagination is limitless and yet, the Maison Bleue is nothing short of a legend: every day, the splendid Relais & Châteaux offers unforgettable memories to all lovers of fantastic fables. Sensitive and astonishing cuisine, made from local products and iodized treasures, in an enchanting setting. Once upon a time there was Yoann, storyteller on the shores of Lake Annecy.
