“A cuisine of a moment and of a desire, rather than that of a season”
Maître de Maison
- Xavier Beaudiment
On the edge of Clermont-Ferrand, Le Pré unites the city with the treasures of Auvergne’s countryside. Each morning, the undergrowth, fields, mountains and forests offer Xavier Beaudiment the wild plants and herbs whose praises he sings.
The menu is as invigorating as a walk at the foot of the volcanoes. The plants dictate their desires to the fresh meat and lake fish, rather than the other way around. Carefully listening, the two-Michelin-star chef then creates mischievous associations and poetic variations in which his technical mastery truly shines. For those wishing to enjoy the pleasure of picking fresh herbs in the morning dew, a few bright and natural rooms welcome you for a cosy night’s sleep.
